Abstract:

This work comprised of the further development, fabrication and fielding of four AFGL piezoelectric atmospheric density measuring systems. Improvements were made in the accelerometer electronic system to further reduce interference due to body motion acceleration. Other improvements were made to simplify the system. A radar transponder was added to assist in tracking the payload which required re-integration of the total system.
