Abstract:

The report describes the design and development of two density measuring systems to be included in an Air Force satellite. The sensor is a cold cathode gauge used for the measurement of density at satellite altitudes. A second experiment will serve to provide data relating to the vehicle attitude. Both instruments utilize electrometer amplifiers in the range of 0.0001 A to 10 to the minus 9th power A. Author
