We present a first comparison of Energetic Neutral Atom (ENA) heliosheath measurements, remotely sensed by the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission and the Ion and Neutral Camera (INCA) on the Cassini mission, with modeled ENA inferred from interstellar pickup protons that have been accelerated at the termination shock, using hybrid simulations. The observed ENA intensities are an average value over the time period from 2009 to the end of 2012, along the Voyager 2 trajectory. The…
