Abstract:

The results of the Salton Sea Meteorological Instrumentation Test Series MITS are analyzed and extended to include root mean square errors in the wind speed, range, elevation and azimuth angles, as measured by the ANGMD-2 Rawin Set, for a series of representative flights. Criteria are presented as guidelines for conducting additional field tests in order that such tests will generate sufficient data to permit the determination of rms wind errors to a higher degree of confidence and accuracy than that which is currently attainable. An effort is made to categorize the wind errors derived, on the basis of established errors in the altitude, slant range, azimuth and elevation angles.
