Lyman Alpha Imaging CAmera (LAICA)

LAICA – LYMAN and CAMERA

The Lyman Alpha Imaging CAmera (LAICA) images the Exosphere. LAICA enhances the STORM payload by imaging the Earth’s exospheric neutral hydrogen density to aid in determining magnetosheathand ring current densities from the intensities of the soft X-rays and energetic neutral atoms seen in XRI and ENA images.
