Abstract:

Field measurements of integrated path crosswinds were made at Biggs Optical Range, Biggs Army Airfield, Fort Bliss, Texas, during the period 31 January to 8 March 1978 with the passive remote crosswind sensor, a system that measures crosswinds by detecting and analyzing the movement of atmospheric scintillations. Data collected with this sensor were compared to integrated path wind averages measured by the calibrated anemometer array. Presented in this report are X-Y scatter plots, derived weighting functions, analog comparative plots, and sampled analog data. Conclusions and recommendations are made in the last sections. Author
