Abstract:

A series of rawinsonde balloon flights has been tracked simultaneously by ANGMD-1B rawin and ANFPS-16 radar. The data acquired have been analyzed for height, wind speed, wind direction, and angular error under field operational conditions. Differences have been tabulated through the first 35,000 feet of the atmosphere and have shown significant ANGMD-1B errors under the assumption that ANFPS-16 data are optimum. Mean error values are shown in order to establish a bias, and RMS deviation of error is shown as an indicator of precision of the ANGMD system. Author
