NOTES:

X denotes that the response has been calculated to be NIL.
U denotes that the response is below the energy range that can be computed from the Norticliffe based range table (0.0125 MeV/nuc). The precision of the passband edges is no better than 5%. Electron responses for the A0,A1,A2,A3 channels shown in italics ignore magnetic deflection which will remove these responses in the flight instrument.
