the critical line-of-sight intersection height H C we find where R is the dry gas constant for air. This equation does not consider the effects of atmospheric moisture on W s and in practice could be calculated using the U.S. Standard Atmosphere, 1976 or radiosonde data. The value of U ag depends on H a , the aeronautical characteristics of the particular airborne sonde platform, and environmental conditions. For example, at maximum cruising altitude, 15.27 km (51 000 ft), a
