Abstract : The technique of differences or replication is modified to be able to estimate the pure random error variance and covariance components from simultaneous measurements by either radar (FPS-16) or direction finding (AN/GMD-1A) observing systems. An example of the estimation of the random error variance from simultaneous FPS-16 observations is presented. The technique is applicable to the determination of the uncertainty of derived estimates from the basic data, such as geographical position, wind, wind shear, Richardson number, etc. (Author)
