The other is electron sensor, which measures internal charging currents caused by energetic electrons. There are eight sensor plates arranged in a stack and each plate responds to a different energy range. As a result, energetic electrons whose energy range between 0.2 to 4.5 MeV can be measured by the electron sensors. The time resolution of each sensors is 10 sec. The field of view of SEDA is eastward. Thus, the specification of SEDA is suitable for monitoring the energetic electrons and protons above Japanese meridian of Geostationary orbit.
Himawari-8/SEDA has been operating since November 3, 2014. Based on the agreement between Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) and NICT, JMA is providing Himawari/SEDA data in near-real time since January 21. 2015. Currently we are checking the quality of Himawari-8/SEDA data. Results of initial observation by Himawari-8/SEDA will be introduced in our presentation.
