High Bit Rate Reduced Proton-Electron Data


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

Time span: 1964-09-07 to 1964-12-02


This high transmission rate scintillator count rate data set is on seven experimenter-supplied, 7-track, 800-bpi, odd-parity, binary magnetic tapes written on an IBM 360/75 computer. The tapes contain one file each and do not contain standard OS/360 tape labels. The tapes contain the ion-electron detector data transmitted at the 8- or 64-kbs rates but none of the 1-kbs rate data. Each physical record contains 5664 bytes in four 1416-byte logical records. Each logical record contains time (UT); the detector currents and count rates measured during 1/2 or 1/16 revolution of the detector absorber wheel; a series of housekeeping parameters; orbit and attitude parameters defining the satellite position in GEI, geomagnetic, magnetospheric, and ecliptic coordinates; and the detector orientation. The data are time ordered, and data overlaps have been removed. The same data, compressed to be equivalent to 1-kbs sampled data, along with the data recorded at 1 kbs, are in data set 64-054A-16A.
