Abstract : The capability of the high energy proton spectrometer system developed to measure the flux and energy spectrum of protons above 1 mev in the Van Allen radiation belts and interplanetary space has been expanded to enable measurements of protons and electrons between about 40 kevAND 4 MEV. Modifications to the system include the addition of two detectors (one for low energy proton detection and one for electron detection), and the addition of a programmer circuit and 7 channels to the 5 channel electronic analyzer package.
