Develop New Reconnaissance Capability



In support of operations and to provide input for numerical models, the NOAA G-IVSP will meet the following recon requirements from an altitude of 43,000 ft:

  • Initial capability

     

  • Storm Position: GPS position.

     

  • Central Pressure: Dropsonde.
  • Future Capability (will need further research and funding)

     

  • 3-D Wind field: Remote sensors (VSDR, Scatterometer, radiometer).

     

  • Rainfall distribution: C-band Nose radar and Remote sensors (VSDR).
