Abstract:

Two Aerobee rockets, instrumented with payloads for measuring auroral parmeters, were launched from the Churchill Research Range, Manitoba, Canada in late March 1969. Ejected nosetip payloads and main payloads were utilized to obtain simultaneous measurements at separate locations within the aurora. The instrumentation included electron and proton counters, electron density and temperature probes, X-ray counters and auroral light photometers. Details of instrumentation are presented. Author
