My (big) mistake wrt LEWIS

Category : Cal/Val, Data, ground measurements

I would like to complement a statement I made on several posts which is inaccurate!

I said on several occasions that LEWIS had been designed by F Lemaitre from ONERA when he actually designed the receiver etc but not the horn which was designed by CNES (M Dejus). I may even add that the design of the horn inspired the design of EMIRAD horn probably and, moreover, was used directly for CAROLS and MARMOTTE2.

This being corrected, I am glad to add hat LEWIS, in the Alps, is still running strong!
