CINDI (Coupled Ion-Neutral Dynamics Investigations)
A NASA Mission of Opportunity, developed by researchers at the University of Texas, Dallas, to understand better the dynamics of the ionosphere. The two CINDI instruments will fly aboard a satellite in 2003 which begins a United States Air Force program called the Communication/Navigation Outage Forecast System. CINDI will study the coupling processes between ionized and neutral gases near 400-km altitude.
