Abstract:

The present document describes a Digital Radar Data DIRAD system, already in use in connection with ground-based installations, and readily adapted to existing and prospective airborne radar equipment, which will greatly enhance capabilities for near real-time quantitative assessment and remote display of meteorological radar data. This concept is particularly timely in view of the planned resumption of Project Stormfury activities in the Pacific Ocean in 1977, and the extensive use of airborne analytical instrumentation required for assessment of the effects of modification efforts on typhoons.
