The authors present a description of the POLAR 2.0 code and data structure. POLAR 2.0 calculations of the self-consistent magnetosheath of a sphere in a magnetic field are presented and shown to be consistent with the Parker-Murphy limits. The POLAR code is shown to agree with the results of a 2-dimensional code for this symmetric case. Preflight SPEAR II calculation of the current distribution to the spheres, booms, and rocket body were performed for two of the voltage configurations. These results are presented here and compared with corresponding nonself-consistent calculations using the NASCAP/LEO code. Keywords: Magnetic limiting, Space charge. Author.
