Abstract:

This is the Final Report for the subject contract under which The University of Texas at Dallas UTD built, tested and delivered an engineering model and three flight versions of the Drift Scintillation Meter DSM to the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory for flight on the Air Force DMSP satellites. The report is divided into three sections. Section 1 contains the instrument description and theory of operation. Section 2 contains a description of planned spacecraft-level instrument testing, stimulation requirements and instrument handling and safety. Section 3 contains an instrument interconnection diagram and a list of the schematics, drawings, parts lists and wiring lists that describe the as-built configuration of the instrument. This documentation is available in the RD Equipment Information Reports that were submitted to AFGL after each instrument delivery. Author
