This report describes the collection of data related to the calibration of two systems for detecting and tracking aircraft wake vortices. The systems tested were the propeller anemometer Ground Wind Vortex Sensing System and the Pulsed Acoustic Vortex Sensing System. The data were analyzed and the location of the vortices as determined with these systems were compared with the vortex location as determined photographically. The tests were conducted at the Federal Aviation Administration's National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center, in Atlantic City, NJ. (Author)
