Rate Data


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

Time span: 1973-11-03 to 1975-03-21


These experimenter-supplied, charged particle telescope rate data are on binary magnetic tape created on an XDS 930 computer. An observation (a logical record of 44 24-bit words) is defined to be a collection of all rates computed over a 1-min interval of real-time together with some identifying information, data quality indicators and supporting spacecraft or instrument parameters. The physical records contain 12 logical records. The identifying information includes year, spacecraft identification, and time (in seconds of year) of the beginning and end of the count accumulation used to compute the rate for the observation. The remaining data include seconds of coverage for three rate types; computed rate in counts per second of seven frame rates; charged-particle telescope, spacecraft bay seven, and battery temperature; and spacecraft buss voltage and current during the 1-min interval.
