Abstract: [from]

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has flown energetic particle
(EP) detectors on a series of programmatic geosynchronous
satellites. The first of these satellites was launched in 1976. The
most recent satellite was launched in 1994. The energetic particle
detectors measure electrons and positive ions with energies greater

The Energetic Particle Team has adopted the philosophy that it is

data from the LANL geosynchronous energetic particle detectors is
quite reliable. However there are some known problems. These include
telemetry glitches, backgrounds from shielding-penetrating particles,
ephemeris errors, etc.
