MAJIS Jupiter High Temporal Fr
Study of the evolution of atmospheric features at high temporal frequency.
Tracking of features on the Jovian disc, on dayside as well as on nightside, with limited latitudinal coverage.
MAJIS will acquire several “subcubes” with limited number of lines (about 40) using the scan mirror centered at one fixed position over the nominal Jupiter coordinate grid and reference surface.
Planet rotation is compensated by continuous slew of the spacecraft (stop when acquiring).

pointing type: OFF_NADIR, NYS, DISCONTINUOUS SLEW (‘track landmark scan’)
satellite orientation: HORIZONTAL
Duration: 80 sec for each sub-cube.
Total duration about 5 h (1/2 of rotation period)




Time between cubes defines actual temporal sampling and is variable (zero data rate here)
any rule that is used to schedule the observation: repetition rules, continuous (plasma instruments), one-off, every orbit, every day, etc
conditions that make the observation not possible (e.g. thruster firing)
