MAJ_MainRING _HighPhase
MAJ Radial and azimuthal structure of the main rings region (low elevation (~<0.5deg), high phase
Observations of the main rings (2 ansa) at high phase (forward scattering light), no tracking of azimuthal structure, no spatial binning to increase spatial resolution.
Pointing: OFF-NADIR, S/C pointing centered on the extremity of main rings, S/C depointing required for the two ansa
Satellite orientation: Maintaining the MAJIS slit parallel to radial axis of main rings, MAJIS scan mode activated for vertical sampling (20 vertical lines) centered on the rings
Duration: 400 sec (excluding the S/C repointing to the other ansae)


nadir offset


Low elevation (~<0.5°), high phase, eclipse, 2 ansa Acquisition at far distance (>8.105 km at closest approach) to mitigate the spikes issue (<1 e- impacts/s) constraining the resolution (IFOV>=120 km before binning) 100 kHz readout mode (lowest RON < 30 e-)
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)
