5-Min. Accumulated Sectored Counting-Rate Summary Files

NSSDCA ID: PSFP-00106

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

Time span: 1973-04-07 to 1994-12-31

Description

This data set is contained on binary magnetic tapes written on an XDS-930 computer. The data are grouped into physical records of 960 24-bit words. Each physical record contains six 160-word logical records. Each logical record contains all experiment-mode count-rate data accumulated over a nominal period of 5 min. Information on particle arrival directions is provided by count rates recorded in each of the eight octants (sectors) about the spacecraft spin axis for the main and low-energy telescopes. No ephemeris data are included on the tapes.
