Plasma/Particle sensors onboard mother satellite of SCOPE are comprehensive instruments for plasma, medium energy and high energy charged particle measurements with super high time resolution for low energy electrons and with continuous measurement energy coverage between eV to MeV. Plasma sensors onboard far daughter satellite of SCOPE are high performance light weight sensors that measure MHD scale plasma parameters.
