Fields, Particles and Microwave Remote Sensing Waves Cassini Plasma Radar Spectrometer (CAPS) Cosmic Dust Analyzer Radio Science (RSS) (CDA) Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) Magnometer (MAG)

Magnetosperic Imaging Composite Infrared Spectrometer CIRS Using heat to create a picture Features: Far Far-Infrared Focal Plane. Mid Infrared Focal Plane, Mid-Infrared Focal Plan Imaging Science Subsystem ISS

Converts the variety of electric and magnetic fields into a solid picture that gives us a better idea of what is found in that area. One wide-angle camera and one narrowangle camera. Ultraviolet Imaging Spectograph UVIS Analyze environment through the use of UV lights Pick your own colors, since human eye cannot see
