The payload for the Rapid Acquisition Imaging Spectrograph (RAISE) will climb to above 150 kilometers to gather about five minutes of observations of an active region of the Sun. The Solar Dynamics Observatory, the Hinode Solar Observatory, and the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) will also target the same area of the Sun to gather multiple data perspectives.
