A number of recent and proposed joint UK and China space missions have provided the opportunity for cooperation on space instrumentation and data systems. In particular, the joint ESA-CNSA Double Star mission allowed a modified implementation of the fluxgate magnetometer (FGM) designed for the ESA Cluster mission and a fast energetic particle instrument is in development, anticipating Kuafu and other possible future missions, which allows full 3-D measurements of the particle distribution in the nominal energy range from about 20keV to about 1 MeV to be made at high time resolution (~0.4 sec) using a wide FOV modular design. The development of the particle instrumentation includes design options which allow combined operation with other high energy particle instruments. Low mass versions are possible and may be considered as part of the payload for small satellite missions.
