Abstract : A series of small rocketborne radiometers and spectrometers were installed for one static firing and two launchings aboard Aerobee-Hi research rockets. Performance characteristics were determined and are discussed, plus design requirements for advanced instrumentation. The radiating characteristics of the plume were measured as a function of altitude, and the plume spectral radiance and modulation spectra are presented. (Author)
