Recoverable Plasma Diagnostics Package (RPDP)The recoverable plasma diagnostics package (RPDP) is an ejectable and recoverable satellite with flight and ground support systems so that it can be utilized in three modes: attached to an remote manipulator system; tethered; or as a subsatellite. The satellite is well instrumented with particle and field diagnostic as well as optical sensors to: investigate the dynamics of the natural environment or ejected perturbations from particle beams; measure the characteristics and propagation of electrostatic and electromagnetic waves; study wave particle interactions; and study natural properties of the magnetosphere, ionosphere, and upper atmosphere.
