Abstract:

The Signature and Propagation Laboratory of the U.S. Army Ballistics Research Laboratory had previously procured seven high energy and eight low energy radiation spectrometers. These instruments were used during the Defense Atomic Support Agency sponsored Polar Cap Absorption PCA project conducted at Fort Churchill, Canada, in the summer and fall of 1969. The instruments required check-out, calibration, significant unexpected rework due primarily to unanticipated storage beyond potting compound shelf life, recalibration and integration into appropriate payloads. The report reviews the performance of these efforts.
