SOLRAD 10 Check Out BY Joe Spano

10 x 8  B/W Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.  71-H-979

2 July 1971

SOLRAD 10 satellite payload is being checked out by Joseph Spano, engineer, at the Wallops Island Test Facility. The 260-pound spacecraft, SOLRAD 10 (C) will be boosted into a near circular orbit, about 370 miles above the Earth by NASA's all-solid propellant Scout Launch Vehicle. There are 14 experiments aboard the NRL satellite, designed to monitor continuously solar electromagnetic radiation. Information gained by the satellite is expected to contribute to a better understanding of the physical processes involved in solar flares and other solar activity, and the potential effects of this activity on shortwave communications, as well as on future manned space travel.

SOLRAD 10 View Of Solar Flares

10 x 8  B/W Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.  71-H-955

June 1971

In addition to giving off light and heat, the sun, during solar eruptions, billows froth clouds of particles and other omissions of varying intensity. When these particles are strong enough and collide with the Earth some hours later, they can dissipate more energy in the Earth's high atmosphere than the most destructive hurricanes on record. The resulting electrical and magnetic disturbances can black out long range radio communications, cause airplane and ship compasses to shift erratically and trigger brilliant auroral flashes. The continual monitoring of the sun by SOLRAD 10 will give Earth scientists an early warning sentinel and will help predict the duration of these disturbances.

NASA No.  70-H-1487

December 1970

Technicians put the final touches on the NASA Small Astronomy Satellite-A (SAS-A) during magnetic checks at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre in Greenbelt, Md. The satellite is the 42nd in NASA's Explorer series and is the first satellite equipped with sensitive instruments specifically to map X-ray sources both within and beyond our own galaxy. The satellite is otherwise known as the X-Ray Explorer. The X-ray Explorer, first American spacecraft to be launched by another country, is scheduled for launch by an Italian space team from their mobile launch platform (San Marco) off the coast of equatorial East Africa.

Explorer 42 was successfully launched from the San Marco off-shore platform on 12 December 1970 onboard a Scout Launch Vehicle.

Application Technology Satellite (ATS); experimental communications satellite.

The purpose of the ATS-6 (F) flight experiment was to demonstrate north-south station-keeping of a geosynchronous satellite using two caesium ion engine systems. Thrusters development tests included a life test of 2614 hours and 471 cycles. Thrusters input power was 0.15 kW, which resulted in a thrust of 4.5 mN at a specific impulse of 2500 s. One of the ion engines operated for about one hour and the other for 92 hours. Both of the engines failed to provide thrust on restart due to discharge chamber caesium flooding.

Explorer 29 GEOS-A

10  x  8  B/W Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA  No.  65-H-1561

6 November 1965

Geodynamics Experimental Ocean Satellite (GEOS)

Explorer 29 designated GEOS-A the 385 pound spacecraft was launched into orbit by the Thor Delta E 457/D34 (TAD) launch vehicle on 6 November 1965.

The primary objective of GEOS-A was to provide global geodetic measurements for determining the positions of fiducial control points on the Earth to an accuracy of 10 meters in an Earth centre of mass co-ordinate system, and to determine the structure of the Earth's gravity field to 5 parts in 10 million. Instrumentation included (1) four optical beacons, (2) laser reflectors, (3) a radio range transponder, (4) Doppler beacons, and (5) a range and range rate transponder. These were designed to operate simultaneously to fulfil the objectives of locating observation points (geodetic control stations) in a three dimensional earth centre-of-mass co-ordinate system within 10 m of accuracy, of defining the structure of the earth's irregular gravitational field and refining the locations and magnitudes of the large gravity anomalies, and of comparing results of the various systems onboard the spacecraft to determine the most accurate and reliable system.

January 1968

GEOS-B Explorer 36 was launched onboard the Thor Delta E1 454/D56 from Launch Complex SLC2E at Vandenberg AFB on 11 January 1968.

The objectives of the spacecraft were to optimise optical station visibility periods and to provide complementary data for inclination-dependent terms established by the Explorer 29 (GEOS 1) gravimetric studies The spacecraft was placed into a retrograde orbit to accomplish these objectives. Operational problems occurred in the main power system, optical beacon flash system, and the spacecraft clock, and adjustments in scheduling resulted in nominal operations.

March 1975

GEOS-C (3) was launched onboard the Delta 1410 584/D109 from Launch Complex SLC2E at Vandenberg AFB on 9 April 1975.

The mission of GEOS 3 was to provide the stepping stone between the National Geodetic Satellite Program (NGSP) and the Earth and Ocean Physics Application Program. It provided data to refine the geodetic and geophysical results of the NGSP and served as a test for new systems. A major achievement was the flight of a radar altimeter. Further mission objectives: inter-comparison of tracking systems, investigation of solid-earth dynamic phenomena through precision laser tracking, refinement of orbit determination techniques, determination of inter-datum ties and gravity models, and support of the calibration and position determination of NASA Spaceflight Tracking and Data Network (STDN) S-band tracking stations.

21 January 1975

The GEOS spacecraft were gravity-gradient-stabilized, solar-cell powered satellites designed exclusively for geodetic studies. They were flown as part of the National Geodetic Satellite Program.

Instrumentation varied by mission, with the objectives of locating observation points (geodetic control stations) in a three dimensional earth center-of-mass coordinate system within 10 m of accuracy, to determine the structure of the Earth's gravity field to 5 parts in 10 million, of defining the structure of the earth's irregular gravitational field and refining the locations and magnitudes of the large gravity anomalies, and of comparing results of the various systems onboard the spacecraft to determine the most accurate and reliable system. Acquisition and recording of data were the responsibility of the GSFC Space Tracking and Data Acquisitions Network (STADAN). Ten major observing networks were used.

The program was directed by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Prime Contractor was The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

Titan 3C7 Art Concept

10  x  8  Colour  Glossy NASA Photograph

NASA No.   PL-62-79600

1962

A very nice concept of the Titan III launch vehicle. As the Titan 3C7 never flew and it has 7 segment sold motors, I feel that this was intended to be the 3C7. I can count seven segments on each of the solid rocket motors in this fine painting.

The text on the back only reads: "Artwork of 624 A Missile" 

Seems to me that the 624 would refer to the LV number .. anyone have any ideas ???
