The Joint Doppler Operational Project
1977-1979

Notes:
Another milestone in NSSLís past is the JDOP project. Although NSSLís Doppler radar was the one being tested, AFGRL also brought their 5 cm radar to compare observations. This project convincingly showed the superior performance of 10 cm wavelengths over that obtained with a 5 cm wavelength radar observing severe weather at long ranges.
