Abstract:

Two weeks of surface and upper-air meteorological measurements are presented. These measurements were part of an international effort, consisting of contributions from Canada, France, The Netherlands, Germany, and the USA, coordinated by NATOAC243Panel 3 Research Study Groups 8 and 21. This effort was designed to assess the effects of the lower atmosphere on the propagation of the electromagnetic phase front at frequencies from 10 to 94 GHz. Radio frequency propagation and meteorological measurements were made between the island of Ile de Groix and the town of Gavres, France. The results from this coordinated effort should lead to significant improvement in the understanding of low-altitude target acquisition and tracking.
