Analyzed, Condensed, Orbit/Attitude File Covering Data Time Span of (64-064A-16)


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

Time span: 1964-09-05 to 1964-12-02


This analyzed data set contains, on one magnetic tape supplied by Dr. A. Konradi, a condensed set of the orbit/attitude parameters required for analysis of OGO 1 experiment number 16 (64-054A-16) for the complete life of that experiment. The data were extracted from the orbit/attitude tapes supplied by the OGO project. The tape is a 9-track, 1600-bpi, odd-parity, binary magnetic tape written on an IBM 360/75 containing one file of information written in 10,600-byte physical records. Each physical record contains 100 106-byte logical records, and each logical record contains 28 fields of information. The information includes date and time (UT); orbit number; satellite position in both GEI and B,L coordinates; model geomagnetic field strength and direction at the satellite; whether the satellite was in a stabilized, spinning, or unknown mode; the spin period; and the spin axis direction and orientation of the orbital plane experiment package in GEI coordinates.
