Short summary
Spacecraft missions do not always record observations at the highest possible resolution, and the so-called burst mode is switched on only occasionally. It is of paramount importance that processes of interest are sampled in burst mode. At the moment, many missions rely on a scientist in the loop, who decides when to trigger burst mode by looking at the preview data. Our work constitutes a first step towards making this decision automatic to improve mission operations and decrease human bias.
