Time Charts of Alouette 1 Operations on Microfiche (DRTE Data)


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

Time span: 1962-09-29 to 1965-12-31


This data set, prepared at the Defence Research Telecommunications Establishment (DRTE), Ottawa, Canada, provides on microfiche a graphical indication of the duration of Alouette 1 operations. The axes of the graph are "day of the year" and "Greenwich mean time." The times during which the satellite was in operation are indicated by a solid line. For every month there is one graph for each telemetry station, followed by a summary graph showing the combined operation of all stations. A second set of graphs shows, in the same manner, the availability of data from the VLF experiment. This microfiche data set was prepared at NSSDC from unpublished (undated and unnumbered) internal DRTE reports titled "Alouette 1 Time Charts." A single copy of these reports is available for use at NSSDC as TRF B06231 and B06235. On request, individual pages can be copied as required or the microfiche copy can be supplied. This data set is also available on magnetic tape as data set 62-049A-00D.
