Abstract : The objectives of this study were to perform basic research in several areas related to optical and infrared systems technology. The areas include: (1) Modeling of High Temperature Molecular Data; (2) Cloud Background Measurement, Analysis, and Modeling; (3) High Altitude Atmospheric Emissions; and (4) Analysis of Satellite Data. Work in these areas included modeling CO sub 2 and H sub 2 O emissions, supporting the Infrared Background Signature Survey (IBSS), providing the CIRRIS 1A experiment with a variety of task supports, designing earthlimb radiance structure measurement experiments for the MSX flights, modeling high altitude water emissions, and analyzing spectral, spatial, temporal data from some of the instrumentation for the EXCEDE 3 atmospheric energy deposition experiment.
