Abstract:

The major effort at the Applied Physics Laboratory of the Johns Hopkins University while participating in the Air Force Geophysics Laboratorys planning of the polar orbiting space shuttle payload definition is to provide necessary information on the polar region space environment and suggestions on the various measurements of the interaction between the space structure and the environment. During the first phase, the effort was concentrated on the polar region space environment, and results of the investigation were presented to the first meeting of the IMPS Definition Phase at JPL. During the second phase of the program, the major effort was on the investigation of possible instrumentation to perform measurements of the interaction between space structures and the environment. Four measurements and their instrumentation were conceived and suggested to the IMPS Definition Team. These are summarized here. Author
