An advanced, inexpensive, transportable radar meteor trail set was developed and was recommended as an international standard by IUCSTP at the Moscow 1971 COSPAR meeting. The interferometer height-measuring technique, tested with the CRLH 001 Beacon in satellite OV1-17, was also recommended because of ground calibration capability and achieved accuracy. Computer programs for data reduction and advanced analysis were used to reduce and study wind and density data from AFCRL, Eglin AFB, Stanford University and the University of New Hampshire. Results were compared with other investigators findings. Author
