5. Electron Electrostatic Analyzer (EEA) Measurement Algorithm Description

5.1. Theoretical basis

This section provides context and background information for the quantity or phenomenon being detected. The algorithms and techniques used are described, with pertinent equations and references included. Logical groupings (i.e., separate subsections) may be used for clarity of the concepts introduced.

5.2. Conversion of Instrument Signals to <Measurable units>

5.2.1. Measurement Equations

This subsection (one for each subsystem) describes the equations used to derive measurable quantities from raw instrument signals.

5.3. Signal Estimates and Error Analyses for Subsystems

5.3.1. <Subsystem name> Signal Estimates and Error Analysis

This subsection (one for each subsystem) provides details on the expected signal values for the instrument subsystem. This can be expressed graphically. A table summarizing the “acceptable” values—that is, the minimum values that would meet mission requirements and be deemed still usable to meet the mission’s science objectives—as well as the estimated uncertainty in the measured values and the error budget allowable for each parameter may be included. The equations for determining the uncertainties should be included.

5.4. Preflight Calibration Algorithms

This section describes the process for calibrating the instrument prior to shipment and/or installation. It may refer back to measurement equations detailed earlier in the document and identify the specific variables being solved for in order to determine proper calibration.
