We propose a series of four coupled north and south ecliptic pole pointings to observe solar wind charge exchange (SWCX) emission from the interplanetary density enhancement of the He focusing cone. The purpose of the observations is to test, verify, and calibrate models for diffuse X-ray emission from the heliosphere, the source of both a significant contamination for observations of extended structures in the cosmic diffuse X-ray background as well as a source of diagnostic information for the solar wind and structure within the solar system. A well-calibrated model for heliospheric SWCX emission can be used to untangle the very local and more distant components of the observed soft X-ray background affecting our understanding of the Milky Way and the local universe.
