Abstract:

METEOROLOGICAL RADAR, ACCURACY, WIND, BALLOONS, RADAR TRACKING, TABLESDATAIn an effort to determine the accuracy of the T-9 radars, thirty jimspheres were released over a 4-day period in October 1971. These radars were used for determining winds to 10,000 feet above surface in the Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory unguided rocket real-time impact prediction system. Each jimsphere was tracked simultaneously by two T-9s and a cinetheodolite camera network. Using the cinetheodolites as a standard, mean differences and standard deviations were derived for each layer and for each profile. The results indicated that by using T-9 radars instead of the theodolite system, the standard deviation for the measured wind could be safely lowered. Author
