Summary
Abstract: The DPS-4, developed by the University of Massachusetts at Lowell Center for Atmospheric Research (ULCAR), is a pulse HF Doppler radar controlled by a computer. It can measure the amplitude, phase, time delay, frequency, Doppler shifts, and angle of arrival and wave polarization from ionospheric echoes. The data is stored originally in a quarter-inch cartridge and retrieved by the Library software and finally saved on CDR disks.
