Abstract : The report discusses the data system developed to process experimental telemetry data from the Spherical Electrostatic Analyzer (SEA) Experiment flown on the ISIS-A Satellite. Data formats, reduction techniques and mathematical formulas are detailed. Anomolies from the experiment ideal and solutions to data processing problems encountered are discussed as possible aids in future development of similar large scale data base systems. (Author)
