Abstract : The report reviews work accomplished from February 1970 through January 1971 on the design, integration and launch support of various sounding rocket payloads. A synopsis of each payload states the basic experimental objectives of the payload; the support electronics and instrumentation supplied; and the results of launch support efforts. Additional material presents a versatile battery charger; a squib power monitor assembly; and the results of evaluation of magnetic detection techniques for motion and position monitoring. (Author)
