Abstract

The Caltech/DSRI balloonborne High Energy Isotope Spectrometer Telescope (HEIST) was flown successfully from Palestine, Texas on 14 May, 1984. The experiment was designed to measure cosmic ray isotopic abundances from neon through iron, with incident particle energies from ~1.5 to 2.2 GeV/nucleon depending on the element. During ~38 hours at float altitude, > 10^5 events were recorded with Z ≥ 6 and incident energies ≳ 1.5 GeV/nucleon. We present results from the ongoing data analysis associated with both the preflight Bevalac calibration and the flight data.
