ACES: Eclipse Observations with the Airborne Coronal Emission Surveyor


The Airborne Coronal Emission Surveyor (ACES) is a new instrument using the Airborne Stabilized Platform for Infrared Experiments (ASPIRE) to explore the large-scale coronal IR emission spectrum during the 2024 total solar eclipse. ACES and ASPIRE will fly on the NSF NCAR Gulfstream V along the path of totality during the second Great American Eclipse in 2024. ACES will use the 20 cm optical feed from ASPIRE to map emission line intensity as a function of radius and solar magnetic structure.
