During the contracting period the radiometers for the 1970 Aerobee experiment have been designed and built. Two of the radiometers have been tested in a ballon flight experiment using the AFCRL Balloon Borne Solar Pointer BBSP 2oo. The electronic system for the rocket experiment has been constructed by Ball Brothers Corporation. The solar pointing control SPCS-2 for the Aerobee rocket was also ordered from Ball Brothers Corporation. A performance test for this system was performed in August 1969. A filter radiometer has been designed for measuring the OH airglow emission height profile from aboard the Aerobee rocket. Construction of a prototype instrument is still under way. Therefore only tests on various components have been carried out so far. Author
