Abstract:

A system for controlling the potential of a vehicle rocket or satellite in flight by use of an emitted current of low energy electrons is described. Diagnostic instruments for measuring the efficacy of such a system are discussed. Results of the use of such a system on a sounding rocket launched into the lower ionosphere are presented.
