ISR School: Millstone Hill Incoherent Scatter Radar
ISR School, he had a tour of the Millstone Hill Incoherent Scatter Radar, i.e. the facility, which brought us to have the school at the MIT Haystack Observatory. The radar operates at 440 MHz with a peak power of 2.5 MW. On of the great advantages of this radar is its large observational range: it is located atop of the hill, and can measure at very low elevation, giving it an exceptional reach.
