Abstract : A wide angle proton spectrometer using solid state detectors was developed. The spectrometer will measure the proton flux and differential energy spectrum from 10 to 100 mev and the integral flux above 100 mev over a solid angle of at least 2 pi. Modular design has been followed to optimize the flexibility of the system, making it suitable for measurements of proton fluxes in various regions of the lower Van Allen Zone. (Author)
