Abstract:

The formal scientific investigative program for studying the Polar Cap Absorption phenomenon, PCA-69, culminated with the occurrence of a major solar event which began on 2 November 1969. Scientific data were collected via 36 specially instrumented sounding rocket payloads launched during the event. Of these, six payloads, flown on Black Brant VA rockets, were provided by a certain corporation. The specific requirements of these payloads, and their capabilities are discussed in this report.
