All Proton-Electron Count Rates, Analysed and Condensed to 1-kbs Rate


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

Time span: 1964-09-07 to 1965-11-16


This experimenter-supplied proton and electron scintillator count rate data set is on four 9-track, 800-bpi, odd-parity, binary magnetic tapes written on an IBM 360/75 computer. The tapes contain one file and do not contain standard OS/360 tape labels. The tapes contain a complete set of ion-electron detector data, including both the reduced data at a 1-kbs rate and the analyzed data transmitted at 8 or 64 kbs, which, on these tapes, have been condensed to an equivalent 1-kbs sampling rate. Each physical record contains 5184 bytes in eight 648-byte logical records. Each logical record contains time (UT); the detector currents and count rates measured during one revolution of the 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.
