SNAP 7D--STRONTIUM-90 FUELED THERMOELECTRIC GENERATOR POWER SOURCE. THIRTY- WATT U.S. NAVY FLOATING WEATHER STATION. Final Report
SNAP 7D--STRONTIUM-90 FUELED THERMOELECTRIC GENERATOR POWER SOURCE. THIRTY- WATT U.S. NAVY FLOATING WEATHER STATION. Final Report The objectives of the SNAP-7D program were to design, manufacture, test and deliver a thirty-watt electric generating system for a modified U. S. Navy NOMAD-class weather buoy to be stationed in the Gulf of Mexico. The sixty-watt Sr/sup 90/ thermoelectric generator, the relay panel, the batteries, and the installation of the system in a boattype buoy are described. In addition to delivering the power supply, many tests were required for the SNAP-7D system to demonstrate its conformance to the contract statement of work. The electrical tests of the generator and of the system, the shock and vibration tests, and the tests at the environmental temperature extremes are discussed. (auth) Quantitative studies were made of the angular distribution of elastic and inelastic scattering of 25-kev electrons on noble gases, and the results were compared with scattering theory in the Born approximation. Results are presented in tables and graphs. (M.C.G.)
