Abstract:

A major objective of this contract is to construct a Quiescent Uniform Ionospheric Plasma Simulator QUIPS to be used in analyzing and modeling the results of various field experiments in which a region of the ionosphere was artificially excited by a radar scattering. In this report the general design considerations for the facility are reviewed and a final design and fabrication schedule is presented. The current status of the construction as well as some of the preparations for the performance of the follow-on activities are described.
