For support of the MMS mission, the SuperDARN radar network has been requested to run the high-time resolution camping beam mode that originated to support THEMIS operations. This mode is requested for each time the MMS satellites are crossing the magnetopause and generally lasting for 12 hours at a time. The plan is to continue requesting this mode through this first phase of magnetopause crossings into early February 2016.
