Abstract : The third Spacecraft Charging Technology Conference, sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the U.S. Air Force, was held at the Air Force Academy from November 12 to 14, 1980. The proceedings contains 66 papers, dealing with the geosynchronous plasma environment, spacecraft modeling, charged-particle environment interactions with spacecraft, spacecraft materials characterization, and satellite design and testing. The proceedings is a compilation of the state of the art of spacecraft charging and environmental interaction phenomena. (Author)
