  • Scientific Objectives of the Able-3 Program

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):129 - 143
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3527 KB)

    The purpose of the Able-3 program is to place a scientific observatory in a highly elliptic satellite orbit. A scintillation counter, ion chamber, Geiger counter, and proportional counter telescope in the payload permit comprehensive mapping of corpuscular radiation over a large volume of the geomagnetic region, including the Van Allen radiation belts. Simultaneously, the fundamental static quanti... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the Able-3 payload instrumentation. The design parameters and functional characteristics of this instrumentation are discussed in terms of the two goals of this program: to build a payload which gathers as much scientific information as possible concerning the space environment about the earth, and to develop and check out communications, power supply, and temperature control ...

    Developments in guided missiles and related scientific areas have reached a state where ballistic flights to the planets Venus and Mars are feasible and imminent with existing hardware. This paper discusses considerations involved in making actual ballistic flight to Venus. Conventional two-dimensional analysis is compared to the actual three-dimensional case. Burnout conditions required to minimi... View full abstract»

  • Detection and Evaluation of Space Radiations

    In the very near future man will escape from his terrestrial environment and venture into space. The first flights will be limited space voyages circling the earth only one or sereral times at altitudes from 100 to 500 miles. As technological advances permit, these space journeys will become longer in duration and farther from earth until travel between planets in our solar system is accomplished.... View full abstract»

  • High-Accuracy Electronic Tracking of Space Vehicles

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2022 KB)

    It is the purpose of this paper to show that optical accuracies can be reached with electronic tracking if the refractive index is known at the site of the radar, as well as at the site of the target. This is the case in tracking space vehicles with microwaves. The index can be measured at the tracking site and it is unity beyond the denser atmosphere. Ionospheric influences can be neglected in th... View full abstract»

  • Some Reliability Aspects of weapon and Other Space Systems Using Ballistic Missile Boosters

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):173 - 174

    This paper shows that there is a need to differentiate, at least on occasion, between weapon and nonweapon space systems where their reliability is concerned. Three criteria are offered as a means of determining whether this differentiation need be made in the case of any particular nonweapon space system. Where this differentiation should be made, possible reliability approaches for the nonweapon... View full abstract»

  • Radar Beacons for IRBM/ICBM

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):175 - 177
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (665 KB)

    This paper summarizes problems which confront engineers who are responsible for the design of radar beacons and beacon antennas used in IRBM and ICBM test vehicles. The most important factors which affect compatibility between the beacon and tracking radars at the test range are enumerated. Cited also are several design areas which should be correlated with the test range prior to finalization of ... View full abstract»

    A description is given of several studies undertaken in the design of a small, gas cell stabilized atomic frequency standard making use of the field-independent hyperfine resonance of rubidium 87 at 6834 mc. In the standard considered, light from a rubidium vapor lamp is used to enhance the population differences between the atomic levels involved in the resonance and also to provide a means of de...

  • Some Considerations in the Design of the Guidance and Control System for Discoverer

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):184 - 185
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1132 KB)

    The limited number of flight tests to date has indicated that the Discoverer satellite will be a highly reliable and effective system from which the ARPA and the Air Force expect to gain valuable additional knowledge of outer space. The achievement of this high degree of reliability and effectiveness of the satellite means that each of its subsystems must, in fact, be even more reliable and effect... View full abstract»
