Abstract:

A developmental test was conducted to determine the operational effectiveness and suitability of the SMOOS sensors in an operational environment in preparation for a MILESTONE III decision. The five SMOOS sensors TemperatureDewpoint, Cloud Height Indicator, VisibilityPrecipitation, Atmospheric Pressure and Sea Water Temperature were all tested. Each of these sensors is designed to measure and report certain environmental parameterss to describe the current state of the airocean environment. There are no hardware or software differences between the SMOOS sensors tested and those proposed for production.
