Abstract GRB consists of two CsI scintillators and two Si surface barrier detectors covering the energy range 5-150 keV. It has three main scientific objectives. The first is to study and monitor solar flare X-ray emission. The second is the detection and localization of cosmos gamma-ray bursts. The third is the in-situ detection of Jovian auroral X-radiation.
Description The archived data consist of count rates from the sum of two hemispherical detectors covering 4 pi steradians and operating continuously. The nominal energy range is 25-150 keV. The time resolution of the data takes on one of four values depending on the telemetry rate and instrument operating mode: 0.25, 0.5, 1, or 2 seconds.

Mission Description The joint ESA-NASA Ulysses deep-space mission conducted the first-ever out-of-ecliptic study of the heliosphere - the region of space influenced by the Sun and its magnetic field. The European-built Ulysses spacecraft was launched by the space shuttle Discovery on the 6th of October 1990, and remained operative until the 30th of June 2009, covering almost a full 22-year solar magnetic cycle.
