This thesis presents the development of two novel Space Plasma Physics instruments. The few costly space weather missions (SOHO, CHAMP etc.) are justified on the qualitative basis of technological capabilities, such as high-resolution magnetometry, UV, X-ray and stray light imaging power etc. Space weather can also be studied from ground. The demands for ground measurements have increased significantly over the recent years (e.g. THEMIS field-of-view is enhanced by ground instruments). Costs associated with cleanroom procedures, space qualification, launch and operation are avoided. Low-cost ground instrumentations are easier to maintain and upgrade.
