Abstract:

A payload for measurement of 7-150 MeV protons and 30-1000 MeV alpha particles has been designed, integrated into, and flown successfully on an Arcas rocket into a solar particle event at Thule on March 29, 1970. The T. M. system has only one channel IRIG E. Data are transmitted and recorded on magnetic tape for each coincidence occurring in a two detector semiconductor telescope. Subsequently, these data are analyzed to determine the relative energy distributions, the angular distribution, the intensity of the energy distribution and the particle types.
