Abstract:

Experiment details and measurement technique are described for ionization gauge measurements performed onboard the Air Force S3-1 satellite. Atmospheric density data obtained over the second half of the S3-1 satellite flight are presented in the appendices in the form of graphs of atmospheric density versus altitude and universal time. These representative data were acquired during the time period from January 1975 to May 1975. A flight summary of the processed data base is provided in tabular form. See also AD-A032 373.
