    Space charging effects are caused by interactions between spacecraft materials and the space plasma environment. Rapid discharge of charge buildup on spacecraft may disrupt or damage power, navigation, communications, and other instrumentation. The chapter describes the different regimes for spacecraft charging and possible breakdown situations. Space (IPELS), Maui, Hawaii, June , ], this is an "interdisciplinary" review article which does not only focus on whistler phenomena in space plasmas. The latter has been thoroughly done in classical books [Hel- liwell, ], long review articles [Al'pert, ], and an abundance of topical reviews [Helliwell, ; Sazhin et.

The spacecraft emits electrons and becomes positively charged by as much as 40 to 50 electron-volts (40 to 50 eV). The ions scientists want to observe also are positively charged, but at a lower voltage than the spacecraft. As an added challenge, the plasma density drops rapidly as it moves from Earth, making measurements even more difficult.

    Even though space plasmas usually maintain quasi-neutrality to within less than about 1 part per million, there can still be substantial currents, convection, plasma flows, plasma waves and shocks and other plasma effects that interconnect plasmas over vast expanse as demonstrated by direct measurements of solar system space plasmas. well. Limiting the charge storing material or charging capacity is a useful method for reducing the internal charging threat. This can be accomplished by providing a bleed path so that all plasma-caused charges can equalize throughout the spacecraft or by having only small quantities of charge-storing materials. Coupling.

Spacecraft charging by magnetospheric plasma is a newly discovered space hazard that can virtually destroy spacecraft in Earth orbit if they are not properly designed.

This volume is a collection of the manuscripts presented at a symposium on "Spacecraft Charging by Magnetospheric Plasmas," held in Washington, DC on Jsubsequently.

A potentially catastrophic environmental phenomenon was recently discovered; large discharges and arcs on spacecraft. This phenomenon, induced by magnetospheric substorm events, was probably responsible for numerous spacecraft malfunctions and at least one spacecraft failure.

More often, however, the electromagnetic interference resulting from the arc is induced into various spacecraft Cited by:   Space Sciences and Space Physics.

Margaret Galland Kivelson, Fran Bagenal, in Encyclopedia of the Solar System (Second Edition), Sources of Magnetospheric Plasmas. Magnetospheres contain considerable amounts of plasma, electrically charged particles in equal proportions of positive charge on ions and negative charge on electrons, from various sources.

The main source of plasma in the solar system is the Sun. Abstract. This paper gives an overview of electrostatic charging which occurs on spacecraft in different plasma environments.

Particular emphasis is given to differential charging between sunlit and shadowed insulated surfaces, a phenomenon which is often observed in the geostationary orbit. The adverse environmental effects, such as the effect of the radiation belts on electronics, and spacecraft charging from the magnetospheric plasma, means that designers need to understand interactive phenomena to be able to effectively design spacecraft.

This has led to the new discipline of spacecraft-environment interactions. Space plasmas are assumed neutral.

Although the plasma den­ sities may luctuate, their time scales (inverse of plasma frequencies) are much faster than spacecraft potential variations.

Spacecraft charging takes a longer time than the ambient plasma luctuations because it takes time to ill up capacitances. In the spacecraft charging. Surface Charging.

Surface charging is created from low-energy plasma and photoelectric currents (see Fig. The midnight to dawn sector is a favored region for surface charging-induced anomalies. Typically, differential charging has occurred after geomagnetic substorms, which result in the injection of keV electrons into the magnetosphere.

[Alan Rosen; American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.; American Geophysical Union.;]. A light‐weight, low‐power, plasma analyzer is described that can be used for measuring the plasma environments of spacecraft with constrained resources.

A unique system using a single electrostatic analyzer coupled to a single array of channel electron multipliers allows measurement of the three‐dimensional energy per charge distributions of both ions and electrons over E/q ranges from.

Abstract: Summary form only given. Charging of spacecraft by magnetospheric plasma can produce discharging, which is one possible cause of anomalous operation.

On communications satellites in geosynchronous orbit, the discharge-induced anomalies divide into two categories: those possibly caused by surface charging, in medium-energy plasma clouds in the midnight-to-dawn sector, and those. According to the demands of the current waveforms, the pulsed power supply system can be categorized into three types: (1) the fast power supplies with the requirements of the lowest current (I tp) at the typical time (T tp) as the waveform demonstrated in Fig.

The magnetospheric plasmas show diverse spatial scales, from a Debye length of ~15 cm in the dense cold plasmasphere to the 1 × 10 8 cm gyroradii of MeV protons at geosynchronous orbit to a system size of greater than 1 × 10 11 cm.
