Abstract

Energetic particle observations made by the Irish SLED instrument on the Phobos 2 spacecraft in 1989 have revealed the presence, within the overall energy range <30 keV - > 3.2 MeV, of variously located energetic particle populations in the close Marian environment. The signatures of characteristic boundaries have also been recorded for the first time in energetic particles in the distant Martian magnetotail. The new SLED-II instrument on the Mars-94 Mission is designed to study in detail, with 4π measurement capability, these and other energetic particle phenomena at Mars, while operating, over an extended period, at low altitudes above the planet.
