Abstract : A method and means of assessing the effects of the lower atmosphere on the performance capabilities of a variety of electromagnetic systems. Environmental data is entered manually into a computer by means of a keyboard or on digital tapes in cassette form. A mathematical model is selected and will generate the type of display desired when the required information and a specific electromagnetic system of interest is selected. A display will appear on the graphics-display screen from which hard copies can be made for use in deploying and making tactical decisions as to stationing of assets. (Author)
