The second China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite (CSES-02) will be equipped with the new Electric Field Detector (EFD-02), to measure the ionospheric electric field components at a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) over a wide frequency band (DC - 3.5 MHz) and with a high sensitivity (∼ 1 μV/m). EFD-02 will measure the voltages between different pairs of probes installed at the tips of four booms deployed from the satellite. Compared to the previous similar detectors on board CSES-01 and DEMETER missions, EFD-02 has a cutting-edge sensitivity that allows to observe more thoroughly the variation in the electric field under the magnetic field conditions encountered in its orbit around the Earth.
