3.4. Instrument Subsystem Descriptions

3.4.1. <Subsystem name>

This section (and any necessary subsections) provides details on the susbsystems or components responsible for directly obtaining the measurements or observations pertinent to the instrument. Details on the layout and design of the subsystem, examples of expected measurements, and interactions with any other subsystems should be provided.

3.4.2. <Instrument name> Heritage Subsystem Heritage

This section summarizes any heritage from past missions for the instrument and its subsystems or components (e.g., detectors, cameras, signal processing electronics). Algorithm and Calibration Heritage

This section identifies any heritage from past missions for the algorithms used to process/convert detector signals into the measurable quantities needed to meet the science requirements.
