Abstract : This report covers the work done in development of electronic instrumentation which will be used on satellite and balloon flights to measure ion species in the ionosphere and stratosphere. The satellite instrument is designed to measure both neutral and positive ion constitutents from 1 AMU to 44 AMU. The balloon instrument is designed to measure positive ions in the range of 10 AMU to 400 AMU.
