2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The instrumentation of small sounding rockets for scientific experiments in the region from 50 km to approximately 110 km is described. These particular rockets were developed to measure the diurnal variations of proton spectra and electron densities during solar proton events. Seven rockets were flown with each carrying a three-channel proton spectrometer and a three-frequency Faraday rotation experiment. The proton spectrometer and Faraday rotation experiment are discussed in some detail.Because of difficulties experienced with the telemetry, considerable telemetry development had to be done. Although the telemetry was developed specifically for these rockets, it is of general interest and is described. In particular the report mentions modifications of the rocket antenna system, the voltage controlled oscillators, and the modification of a parametric amplifier for use with the Ft. Churchill range telemetry.Block diagram and photographs are included in the text, while detailed schematics of the pertinent electronics are included in an appendix
