Abstract:

The primary objective of this project was to make RF measurements to determine the amount of radar refractive jitter present in a nuclear burst environment. The secondary objectives were 1 measurement of electron line density 2 investigation of radar clutter 3 measurement of RF noise produced at one radar frequency 4 measurements of absorption over a wide portion of the RF spectrum 5 study of the early time effects of the fireball on radar measurements at several frequencies 6 measurement of fireball reflection at early times Blue Gill and, 7 measurements of dissociated region reflectivity Star Fish Prime. Optical measurements were made to determine 1 damage to direct optical viewing systems, and 2 saturation and blanking of instrumentation viewing the burst region. Additional measurements, in support of other projects, were accomplished.
