AbstractThis OR is for the launching of one Black Brand IIA rocket at night during a period of enhanced auroral activity. Simultaneous X-ray, particle and optical measurements from the rocket, a high-altitude balloon and ground based instruments will be made to study the correlations among the different phenomena associated with the aurora. A neutron detector, acoustic type impact counter micrometeorite detectors, plasma probe, an X-ray detector, an auroral scanner, a galactic X-ray detector, and a photometer will be carried. An ionosperic inhomogeneities expericment will be ejected during the flight. Ground Station recording of three telemetry links is required, together with radar tracking. A special ground station for user equipment is required at the former SAC Alert area. Dr. C.D. Anger is the Project Scientist. The vehicle has been instrumented by Radio and Electrical Engineering Division, of the National Research Council, and contains experiments by the Upper Atmosphere Research Section, the University of Alberta, Calgary, and the University of Western Ontario.
