Description/Abstract:
THIS EXPERIMENT WAS DESIGNED TO MEASURE THE INTERACTION OF EXPANDING N UCLEAR WEAPON DEBRIS WITH THE ION-LOADED GEOMAGNETIC FIELD. FIVE ROCKE TS ON STAR FISH AND TWO ROCKETS ON CHECK MATE WERE USED TO POSITION IN STRUMENTED PAYLOADS AT VARIOUS DISTANCES AROUND THE BURST POINTS. THE INSTRUMENTS MEASURED THE MAGNETIC FIELD, ION FLUX, BETA FLUX, AND THE NEUTRON FLUX AS A FUNCTION OF TIME AND SPACE AROUND THE DETONATIONS. D ATA WAS TRANSMITTED AT BOTH REAL AND RECORDED TIMES TO ISLAND RECEIVIN G SITES NEAR THE BURST REGIONS. MEASUREMENTS OF THE TELEMETRY SIGNAL S TRENGTHS AT THESE SITES ALLOWED OBSERVATIONS OF BLACKOUT AT 250MC. DAT
