Abstract:

Techniques for determination of dynamic error parameters, or those obtained from real trajectories, are studied in detail, with particular attention being given to dependence of estimates on trajectory and to shortcomings of estimation procedures which ignore such dependence. A technique is presented to determine dynamic estimates of error parameters for the rawinsonde and is verified by data. The data indicate that error parameters so determined are smaller than given by most earlier studies and tend to conform to error claims made for the ANGMD-1A Rawinset.
