Charged Particle

NSSDCA ID: 1981-100B-03

Mission Name: UOSAT 1
Principal Investigator:Mr. Ian C. Ferebee

Description

The system incorporated two Geiger counters with electron threshold energies of 20 and 60 keV. These energies were chosen to give good resolution of auroral activity for the study of VHF radio propagation effects. The instrument output was in the form of a 12-bit count supplied to the onboard computer at a maximum rate of once every 200 ms.
