Demonstration and Science Experiments (DSX) Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL)

The Air Force Research Laboratory's Demonstration and Science Experiments (DSX) mission will be launched in 2018 to investigate wave-particle interactions and the particle environment in medium Earth orbit (MEO). Experiments include:

  • The Wave Particle Interaction Experiment (WPIx) will study VLF transmission, propagation, and interaction with trapped particles.
  • The Space Weather Experiment (SWx) package of five particle instruments which will collectively observe electrons from 30 eV to 10 MeV and protons from 30 eV to 400 MeV.
  • The Space Environmental Effects Experiment (SFx) will research and characterize space weather effects on spacecraft electronics and materials.

Data from the SWx instruments will be used in future versions of AE9/AP9/SPM.
