Title: THe high altitude reconnaissance platform (HARP) and its capabilities

Abstract

The High Altitude Reconnaissance Platform (HARP), a Learjet 36A, is a multi-purpose, long-range, high-altitude aircraft specially modified to serve as a meteorological observation platform. Its instrument suite includes: particle probes, Ka-band radar, two-color lidar, infrared spectroradiometer, thermometer, hygrometer, liquid water probe, and a gust probe. Aeromet scientists have developed software and hardware systems that combine data using sensor fusion concepts, providing detailed environmental information. The HARP answers the need for defining and predicting meteorological conditions throughout large atmospheric volumes particularly in areas where conventional surface and upper-air observations are not available. It also fills the need for gathering and predicting meteorological conditions along an optical sensor`s line of sight or a missile`s reentry path. 6 refs., 2 figs., 4 tabs.
