Abstract HISCALE provides measurements of interplanetary ions and electrons throughout the entire Ulysses mission. The ions (E(i) greater than about 50 keV) and electrons (E(e) greater than about 30 keV) are identified uniquely and detected by five separate solid-state detector telescopes that are oriented to give nearly complete pitch-angle coverage from the spinning spacecraft.
Description Ion and electron fluxes best time resolution is 17 minutes; hourly and daily averages are also provided.
Pulse Height Analysis events, rates and spectra.
Ion and electron count rates best time resolution is 12 seconds; 5 minutes, hourly and daily averages are also provided.
Daily and hourly background fluxes.

Mission Description The joint ESA-NASA Ulysses deep-space mission conducted the first-ever out-of-ecliptic study of the heliosphere - the region of space influenced by the Sun and its magnetic field. The European-built Ulysses spacecraft was launched by the space shuttle Discovery on the 6th of October 1990, and remained operative until the 30th of June 2009, covering almost a full 22-year solar magnetic cycle.
