This paper describes the results of the first stage of this project, measurements of the electronic properties of conducting spacecraft materials. We begin with a description of the required measurements and specifics of the experimental methods used. A complete list of the conducting materials studied, justification of their selection for study, and a summary of the important results of the measurements is presented. This is followed by detailed measurements and analysis for one representative conductor, namely polycrystalline Au. We end with a description of incorporation of these measurements into the NASCAP database.
