Abstract:

An approach to modelling upper atmospheric winds is suggested in which the input data is obtained automatically from aircraft via a digital data link. A statistical method is used to combine the observational data, and the realization of a simple, one-dimensional implementation of such a model is described. Finally, the results of operating this model in real time are presented, where the input data were obtained during ascents and descents of BAC 1-11 operated by RAE Bedford. Great Britain. rrh
