ENergetic Trans-Iron Composition Explorer (ENTICE): A mission concept


We describe a mission concept which has as its primary objective the measurement of the elemental abundances of galactic and solar energetic nuclei over the charge range of 14 less than or equal to Z less than or equal to 92. The instruments would have sufficient collecting power to improve the number of particles collected over that of previous measurements by more than an order of magnitude and, more important, will have the capability to clearly distinguish individual elements. These measurements are of fundamental importance to an understanding of the origin, nucleosynthesis, and acceleration of energetic galactic and solar particles.
