Abstract
Solar Probe Plus, scheduled to launch in 2018, is a NASA mission that will fly through the Sun's atmosphere for the first time. It will employ a combination of in situ plasma measurements and remote sensing imaging to achieve the mission's primary goal: to understand how the Sun's corona is heated and how the solar wind is accelerated. The Solar Wind Electrons Alphas and Protons (SWEAP) instrument suite consists of a Faraday cup and three electrostatic analyzers. In order to accomplish the science objectives, an encounter-based operations scheme is needed. This paper will outline the SWEAP science operations center design and schemes for data selection and down link.
