Images from the IMAGE Wide-band Imaging Camera (WIC) and Spectrographic Imager (SI) channel SI12, were compared to in situ data taken by FAST. The IMAGE data segment began during the expansive phase of a substorm and a double oval configuration evolved, consisting of a set of discrete poleward auroral forms and a separate more diffuse oval. The FAST data showed that a narrow (~1.5° latitude) region of downward currents separated the two ovals. The SI-12 optical observations showed a single oval of precipitating protons located on the equatorward side within the diffuse aurora. In agreement with IMAGE, the highest intensity proton flux measured by FAST was concentrated on the equatorward region although low flux protons were present throughout the entire double oval. In the lower latitude diffuse oval occasional structured auroras were embedded. These structured auroras were mostly created by inverted V type electrons but there were narrow regions in which intense beams of accelerated electrons were seen whose energy/pitch angle distribution and accompanying electric field data were consistent with Alfven wave acceleration. The poleward oval consisted of an intense inverted V precipitation event poleward of which a weak region of Alfven wave accelerated electrons was located. From the images it appears that the Alfven wave accelerated electron event in the diffuse auroral regions and the poleward features were part of short lived or rapidly moving auroral forms. [less ▲]

Recent global-scale observations by the IMAGE-FUV instrument demonstrate the existence of regions of particle precipitation at sub-auroral latitudes on the dayside. The signature of this precipitation is seen infrequently, but when so, it is clear in all 3 channels of the FUV instrument. A conjugate hemisphere conjunction with the FAST satellite demonstrates the presence of precipitating protons and the notable absence of precipitating electrons in these arcs. With this knowledge, one can determine the mean energy and energy flux of the precipitating protons by intercomparison of the response in the three FUV channels. Assuming that the protons have a kappa energy distribution, the mean energy is found to be ~20 keV, with a peak in total energy flux of ~1 mW/m[SUP]2[/SUP]/sec, consistent with fits to the FAST ion measurements. These phenomena are observed mainly during times of high solar wind dynamic pressure and variable interplanetary magnetic field, and are associated with earlier nightside enhancements in the brightness and latitudinal extent of the proton aurora.

The proposed HI-LITE Explorer will investigate the global ion outflow from the high-latitude ionosphere, its relationship to auroral features, and the consequences of this outflow on magnetospheric processes. The unique nature of the HI-LITE Explorer images will allow temporal and spatial features of the global ion outflow to be determined. The mission's scientific motivation comes from the fundamental role high-latitude ionospheric ions play in the dynamics of the solar wind driven magnetospheric-ionospheric system. These outflows are a major source of plasma for the magnetosphere and it is believed they play an important role in the triggering of substorms. In addition this paper describes the HI-LITE spacecraft and instruments. [less ▲]
