From [2]:

The Tri-Service Experiment 5 (TSX-5) is the sixth in a series of small-satellite missions for space research and experiments commissioned by the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center as part of its Space Test Program (see sidebar). ... TSX-5 was successfully launched into orbit on June 7, 2000. TSX-5 hosts two Department of Defense (DOD) payloads—STRV-2 (the Space Test Research Vehicle-2), sponsored by the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, and CEASE (the Compact Environmental Anomaly Sensor), sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory.

CEASE Instrument

From [4]:

CEASE is a miniaturized suite of sensors and particle detectors for monitoring the environment surrounding a spacecraft. The instrument is designed to give an indication of the probability and severity of faults caused by surface charging, deep dielectric charging, single-event upsets, and radiation-dose effects. TSX-5 marks the first mission for CEASE and primarily serves as a proof-of-concept flight.
