    The original finding aid described this as: Description: WINCS INSTRUMENTS WITH RUSTY JONES & PATRICK ROMAN . Winds-Ion-Neutral Composition Suite (WINCS).The instrument, developed with significant support from Herrero’s partner,Andrew Nicholas of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), includes four spectrometers and three detectors assembled into a three-inch package using just 1.3 watts of power. Its diminutive size makes it an ideal payload for an emerging class of small spacecraft, often called Cubesats, promoted in recent years by the Defense Department and the National Science Foundation.
