Abstract:

The results of the reduction and analysis of data obtained from instrumentation flown on the Air Force Satellite Hitch-Hiker I 1963-25B and the Blue Scout Vertical Probe CRL-35 are presented. The Hitch-Hiker I instrumentation included two electrostatic analyzers one for electrons, 15 to 100 keV, the other for protons, 15 to 100 keV and an electron scintillation spectrometer 0.5 to 4.0 MeV the vertical probe instrumentation included a proton solid-state spectrometer. Detailed data on integral energy spectra, pitch angle distributions and perpendicular unidirectional intensities, and iso-intensity contours, as functions of B, L or lambda, L and time are given in four papers appended to this report. A fifth paper discusses the theory and use of electrostatic analyzers. Author
