Satellite-Induced Ionization Observed with the DOPLOC System
ARMY BALLISTIC RESEARCH LAB ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND MD
A series of constant frequency doppler reflections obtained with the DOPLOC dark satellite tracking system are presented. These reflections, termed flats, are associated with satellite Doppler reflections and are of the type that would be received from a large, low velocity, ionized cloud. A tabulation of flats recorded at times other than satellite pass times is also given and a discussion of meteor-induced ionization is included.
