The program was conducted to study the feasibility of using proton activation techniques to provide an in situ line source of radioactivity in ATJ-S graphite for application to the measurement of rates of recession on a graphite nosetip during reentry. The Be7 produced by high energy protons E28MeV in a graphite targets emits monoenergetic gamma radiation E 0.48MeV. These gamma rays are detected and counted as a function of reentry time to monitor recession of the nosetip. Author
