Uniqueness of the Payload

  • Simultaneous emission line images in the green and red emission lines allowing for temperature diagnostics
  • Very High Cadence(3-images per second)
  • Simultaneous Polarization images in the continuum and line allowing for density diagnostics, magnetic topology, and 3D structure of CMEs
  • Observations close to the limb(better than 1.1 Rsun)

Technological Challenges

  • Highly polished primary mirror - Micro roughness of the order of 1Å; an order better than the current technology
  • High pointing accuracy - 30 arcsec: requires better than the current technology
  • Large format and fast 2D detector arrays
