Remote Sensing of the Propagation Environment (La Teledetection du Milieu de Propagation)
AGARD conference proceedings
ADVISORY GROUP FOR AEROSPACE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT NEUILLY-SUR-SEINE (FRANCE)
Pagination or Media Count:
Increasing complexity and sophistication of modern military sensor and weapon systems require a more accurate and timely description of the propagation environment for the entire electromagnetic spectrum from extremely low frequencies through the ultraviolet band. Active and passive remote sensing techniques deployed from the ground, from airborne platforms and, very importantly, from satellites offer the greatest potential for producing the desired information in a timely manner. The NATO Symposium addressed first the subject of sensing tropospheric refractivity using propagation measurements and various other remote sensing techniques. The second topic focused on ionospheric sensing techniques and interpretation of remotely sensed signatures. The Symposium then turned to sensing of aerosols and other atmospheric parameters important for the propagation of visible and infrared radiation. Also covered were techniques to measure winds, temperature, liquid water and humidity in the lower atmosphere. Finally, measurement, inversion and processing techniques were presented.
