Solar physics and interferometry mission (SPI)

Abstract : This paper presents the scientific objectives of the Solar Physics and Interferometry Mission (SPI), describes succinctly the model payload and summarizes mission's issues. Novel instrumentation (interferometry) and clever mission design (small platform on low orbit with high telemetry and dedicated smaller platform on hexapod for permanently Sun-centered instruments) allow both spectral imaging and Helioseismology at very high spatial and temporal resolutions. Although not retained by ESA, this mission could become reality through NASA MIDEX and/or CNES PROTEUS opportunities as soon as 2007–2008.
