According to NASA, both options are based on potential technical and scientific value, as well as feasibility. These programs will support NASA's solar physics program. The project aims to better understand the spatial nature of the entire solar system. These projects also plan to determine how space affects the amount of solar energy and the release of particles.
At the end of a few months of research, NASA will select one of the options as an auxiliary payload for the NASA Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe (called IMAP). The detector will be launched in October 2024. The built-in satellite and CubeSat small satellite optical communication technology, while detecting the solar high energy neutral atom level, can pre-warn the radiation harmful to astronauts.
