interface with the ALSEP through ALSEP systems lifetime 1970 ca 25 leaves Final technical report on the Surface Electrical Properties Experiment Part 1 Strangway David W This report consists of a series of reports reprints and preprints that in themselves constitute a self explanatory record of the work performed by the University of Toronto on the Surface Electrical Properties Experiment Areas discussed include data handling and processing installation and external signal application operation of the equipment and digital output Detailed circuit descriptions are included A complete unified discussion of the electromagnetic response of a plane stratified structure is reported A detailed and comprehensive analysis of the theoretical parts of the electromagnetic is given The numerical problem of computing numbers of the electromagnetic field strengths is discussed It is shown that the analysis of the conductive media is not very far removed from the theoretical analysis and the numerical difficulties are not as acute as for the low loss problem 1974 498 pages Final technical report on the Surface Electrical Properties Experiment Part 2 Strangway David W This report

January 22 Crew Engineering performed a 1G space suited performance test with an Engineering Model of the LSPE Geophone Cable Reel The purpose of these tests was to determine if the chosen geophone cable reel configuration would present any basic handling and deployment problems to the crew 1971 9 leaves Flight 3 HFE transient test Fithian D High levels of noise were measured on the HFE Central Station power and data interface lines during Flight 3 Integration Tests
