MAJIS Satellite Medium Resolution
Flyby observations of the satellite surface with vertical (N-S) slews or MAJIS scan providing medium spatial resolution (e.g.resolution from 3 km to 1 km/pixel for Ganymede). Perform when the S/C moves slowly from approach YS phase to PB phase and during PB phase.
Pointing: NYS, NADIR or OFF_NADIR after offset around Y ( ‘motion compensation PB’).
Satellite orientation: MAJIS slit across track. Satellite offsets around Y (off-track pointing) axis or around X axis (for slew).
Duration: a few minutes maximum




+/-1H around C/A (equivalent to +/-20000 km range for Ganymede, +/-13000 km range for Europa, +/-7000 km for Callisto range) but excluding phase near C/A during which MAJIS_Flyby_HR is required
any rule that is used to schedule the observation: repetition rules, continuous (plasma instruments), one-off, every orbit, every day, etc
near C/A during which MAJIS_Flyby_HR is required
conditions that make the observation not possible (e.g. thruster firing)
