Summary
Abstract: The HXRBS operated aboard the SMM spacecraft which was launched on February 14, 1980 and re-entered the Earth's atmosphere December 12, 1989. The duty cycle for the HXRBS was about 50% as a result of the circular SMM orbit with an altitude of 500 km and an inclination of 33 degrees. The orbital period was 95 minutes with 60-65 minutes in the Sun and the remainder behind the Earth. In 7 or 8 ... View entire text
