Wind and Temperature Intermediate Data from the Wind and Temperature Spectrometer (WATS) Experiment on Dynamics Explorer-2
Entry ID: DE_WATS_1


Summary
Abstract: The Wind and Temperature (WATS) experiment on the Dynamics Explorer-2
(DE-2) spacecraft consists of a closed source neutral mass
spectrometer with two rectangular baffles which are swept across the
incoming neutral beam. The modulation of the neutral flux by the
baffles allows measurement of the temperature and gas velocity. The
mass was commandable and was usually selected to be N2 or O.
