Abstract:

Design, fabrication, testing, installation on a sounding rocket equipped with electron and positive-ion accelerators, and flight into the ionosphere of an automatic 16-mm camera are described. A split-field mirror and relay lens system was erected 15 cm outboard from the rocket body for photographing the radiation from electric discharges induced by the potential across an insulating gap separating two sections of the cylindrical body, and the plasma sheath surrounding it.
