A remote observatory for geocoronal hydrogen emissions

The Investigating Near Space Interaction Regions (INSpIRe) observatory is an adapt-able research facility that is designed to use Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) to study the faint Balmer series emissions of the terrestrial upper thermosphere and exosphere, collectively known as the geocorona. This instrumentation is designed to be deployable to a clear-air site, necessitating remote operations of the entire observatory, including control and monitoring.
