Major Research Instrumentation: Advanced Modular Incoherent Scatter Radar (AMISR)


The Advanced Modular Incoherent Scatter Radar (AMISR) is a $2.3 million NSF Grant: AGS-1039593 (2010-2017). This is a MRI Proposal of UMET to lead an ambitious international effort that aims to create a Global Scale Ionospheric Plasma laboratory by placing two National Science Foundation (NSF) Incoherent Scatter Radars (ISR) at both ends of the same geomagnetic field line.  Dr. Juan F.
