15-Min Accumulated Pulse-Height Analysis Data

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00079

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

Time span: 1973-04-07 to 1994-12-31

Description

This data set consists of binary tapes produced by the experimenter on an XDS-930 computer. The data include coincidence-mode count rates together with 128-channel pulse heights of the three pulse-height analyzed elements (D1, D2, and D5) of the seven-element detector telescope, accumulated during 15-min periods of real time. Data for each 15-min period are organized into a variable number of variable-length physical records, the first of which is a 120-word (24-bit words) header record containing the time, count rates, spacecraft attitude angles, and housekeeping data. Subsequent records contain triads of pulse-height analyzer measurements occurring within the 15-min period. No ephemeris data are included on the tapes.
