Abstract:

This analysis is intended to provide a tool for use in designing infrared systems, and is not a theoretical treatise on atmospheric effects in optical transmission. Spectral transmission curves are furnished for several different combinations of atmospheric conditions and ranges. These infrared spectral transmission curves were calculated assuming the earth to be flat for the ranges of interest, and assuming the infrared systems to be at sea level.
