The Mother-Daughter part of the International Sun-Earth Explorer (ISEE) mission is described briefly, with summaries of the spacecraft, their capabilities and limitations, and the measuring ability of the payloads. The present state of the orbit and launch windows are discussed together with their impact on co-ordinated measurements for IMS. The possibilities of the separation strategy are reviewed with illustrations of how and where the ISEE mission can make effective contributions to the IMS.
