Title: INTERIM REPORT ON SAFETY PROCEDURES FOR THE TASK 2 THERMOELECTRIC GENERATOR

Abstract

Operational hazards associated with the use of a radioisotope-fueled auxiliary power unit for a satellite mission are evaluated. The entire fabrication-to-flight and/or retrieval and disposal sequence is examined and safe handling procedures suggested. The design and operation of the Task 2 thermoelectric generator is discussed. (C.J.G.)
