CEOS Instrument: Magnetospheric Atmospheric X-ray Imaging Experiment




Instrument:MAXIE
Agencies: NOAA [Primary]
 USAF
Mission: NOAA-13
Status:No longer operational
Type:Solar irradiance monitor
Description:Magnetospheric Atmospheric X-ray Imaging Experiment. Maps the intensities and energy spectra of X-rays produced by electrons that precipitate into the atmosphere.
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: N/A
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Solar irradiance monitor
Description: Observes radiation coming from the Sun, either integrated (i.e., in the interval 0.2-10 Ám, observed by cavity radiometers) or spectrally resolved (e.g., in the interval 0.2-2 Ám, observed by a spectrometer), or for special features (X-rays, UV, etc,). Applicable in LEO and GEO.
