Abstract:

Recently there has been increased interest within the U.S. Navy in the use of climatology-based products to support the planning and execution of military operations. Climatological databases of atmospheric features that impact electromagnetic EM propagation have been developed to provide guidance on weapons and sensor system performance for expected environmental conditions. However, the marine EM propagation climatology currently in use by the U.S. Navy was developed in the mid-1980s, based on a limited dataset and a now obsolete model, and was focused on open ocean regions.
