Alsep Array Cut for First Moon Missions

New York-Current plans for Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (Alsep) are that four of its seven experiments will be carried on the first two landings, with a different array under study for the landings which will follow. The four priority Alsep experiments are a lunar surface magnetometer, a passive seismometer, a solar wind spectrometer (AW&ST Feb. 27, p. 55) and a supra-thermal ion detector.

Avionics

New Avionic Products

Junction Diode MA-4860 and -4878 series of SchottkyBarrier junction diodes are closely matched for use as balanced modulators from low frequencies through the UHF range. The quads are designed to meet requirements for mixer and balanced modulator applications and for use in devices for broadband phase detector and controlled attenuator applications.
