MAJIS_JUP_DISK_MOSAIC
MAJIS Jupiter Mosaicking
A series of several MAJIS_JUP_DISK_SCAN or MAJIS_JUP_DISK_SLEW
Spacecraft has to be re-pointed between individual acquisitions.
POinting type: YS, NADIR with offset around Y (‘ nadir offset MAJIS scan’’)
satellite orientation: HORIZONTAL (preferred)
Duration:
3 x (scan-duration + turnaround Y duration). Scan duration from 20 to 40 min depending on the distance from Jupiter. Turnaround ~50 min

Due to limitation in downlink, is expected to be perform rarely: 4-scan mosaic at the Jupiter closest approach 3-scan mosaics during Jupiter eclipses Latitudinal coverage 30°S-30°N range can be extended pole to pole with the MAJIS scanner for distances larger than 106 km; at smaller distances, S/C scans are required according to MAJIS_JUP_DISK_SLEW mode. 50 min (TBD) is the maximum time between the end of acquisition for the (n)-th MAJIS cube and the start of acquisition of (n+1)-th MAJIS cube to avoid gaps in longitudinal coverage SC scan (continuous slew) mode with a rate compatible with the 2 sec repetition time is possible; in this case, no scan activated which shall reduce the power to 35.73 W (Table 3 of technical budget report v2.1). Caveats: Turnaround and stabilization times after each swath
any rule that is used to schedule the observation: repetition rules, continuous (plasma instruments), one-off, every orbit, every day, etc
N/A
conditions that make the observation not possible (e.g. thruster firing)
