As an outcome of the last (2023) UK Solar Instrumentation and Facilities Forum, it was decided that the community should consider and share future mission and project ideas to try to identify future UK priorities and strategies for the solar community. We have created a form for this task, and we ask the community to submit brief project concepts ranging from:
Technology and instruments
Mission ideas and proposals
Collaborative science ideas
The above can be shared via the form:
Solar Mission, Instrument, Technology and Collaboration Ideas Submission Form
The submissions will be used to create a database of solar technology, instrument, and mission ideas that will be maintained by the UKSP Council and shared with the community and STFC Solar System Advisory Panel. The information will also be used when organising the UK Solar Instrumentation and Facilities Forum.
The database can also be used to share collaborative science ideas, especially those suitable for the new STFC large awards. We hope this will encourage collaboration in our community and help to form ideas for large and successful solar projects.
The form is also available via the UKSP website:
