Abstract : The flight-test instrumentation package is com plete, with the exception of the coolant line plumbing within the vehicle. Measurements of the potted helical antenna gain, beamwidth and ellipticity were made and found to be adequate for the flight test. Work is progressing on the design of an antenna window system which will utilize in-flight cooling. Two techniques, the use of liquid helium and Peltier coolers, are being considered for cooling the solenoid. Testing of small superconducting solenoids was continued. (Author)
