Abstract:

The report details instrumentation developed for use in two Nike iriquois Niros rockets AE 7.618D and AE 7.619D designed for auroral measurements and flown in 1965 at Fort Wainwright, Alaska, by Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories. The two rockets were identical and carried instruments designed to measure the following electron energy spectrum from 2.5 to 100 kev energy deposition electrons E 8 kev and protons E 100 kev auroral light, 3914 A auroral light wideband 4000 - 1200 A electron density Bremsstrahlung X rays 1 - 8 A electron temperature electron energy spectrum from 25 ev to 5 kev.
