PROBA2 SWAP Image Map.

The Sun Watcher using Active Pixel System detector and Image Processing (SWAP) SWAP provides images of the solar corona at about 17.4 nm, a bandpass that corresponds to a temperature of roughly 1 million degrees, with a cadence of 1 image per 1-2 minutes, and field of view (FOV) of 54 arcmin. It is derived from the SOHO EIT telescope concept design.

PROBA2 was launched on 2 November 2009.
