Abstract : Satellite 1963 38C was launched on September 28, 1963 into a circular, polar orbit at 1100 km altitude. Its instrumentation includes silicon surface barrier detectors, designed to measure mirroring electrons and protons, and Li-drafted cubes for omnidirectional measurement. The electron spectrometer measures integral flux for Ee = or > 0.28, 1.2, 2.4, and 3.6 Mev. The protron spectrometer measures protons with energies in the ranges 1.2 to 2.2, 2.2 to 8.2, 8.2 to 25, and 25 to 100 Mev. Three omnidirectional detectors measure fluxes of particles for which Ee > 0.28 Mev, Ep > 2.2 Mev; Ee > 0.41 Mev, Ep > 8.5 Mev; and Ee > 1.8 Mev, Ep > 25 Mev. In the first five volumes of TG-1050 (-1 through -5) raw data from 1963 through 1967 are presented versus time and B (the magnitude of the local magnetic field) for selected L (a parameter approximately constant along lines of force) values (1.20 = or < L = or < 20 earth radii).
