Cosmic X-ray Pulse Height Data

NSSDCA ID: ASXR-00028

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1977-09-14 to 1978-10-04

Description

These Caltech experimenter-supplied, pulse-height data are on binary magnetic tape created on an IBM 370 computer. The data were written in unblocked logical records of 3336 bytes. Each record consists of time in day and fraction of day (since January 1, 1977); unit vectors in the direction of the satellite Z and Y axis in rectangular celestial coordinates at the center of each minor frame; and a 640-word array of pulse-height or temporal data for detectors LED1 and LED2 (low-energy detectors). For further information on the A-2 data archive, contact Dr. Gordon Garmire, Astronomy Department, 504 Davey Laboratory, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA 16802.
