Abstract : The objective of the workshop was to extend the level of understanding of the adverse weather problem within the DOD, so that millimeter-wave systems can be designed and tested effectively. The key frequencies of interest are 35 and 95 GHz. These papers review measurements, described measurement techniques, and reviewed and recommended instrumentation. It was concluded that a broad program of controlled experiments to measure the effects that precipitation and wet background would have on system performance should be conducted. In addition it was recommended that flight tests of millimeter wave systems under actual adverse weather conditions be carried out.
