Ionospheric Propagation Studies during the Precision Targeting Experiments.
LOWELL UNIV MA CENTER FOR ATMOSPHERIC RESEARCH
Pagination or Media Count:
In support of the Rome Air Development Centers Precision Targeting Experiment during March and April 1985, the University of Lowell Center for Atmospheric Research installed and operated a Digisonde 256 vertical incidence ionospheric sounder at Erie, Colorado. The sounder continuously measured the local ionospheric layer parameters, including ionospheric tilts, during two five-hour flights of the Air Force Geophysics Laboratorys aircraft. The data has been scaled and analyzed to provide a description of the ionosphere as it affected the HF radio waves transmitted from the SRI-Internationals over-the-horizon radar facility in Los Banos, California. Comparison is made between the results simulated using ionospheric models, the backscatter ionograms and the oblique ionogram data over the same propagation path. Author
