Abstract:

The objective of this program is to measure and quantify the atmospheric constituents affecting the transmission and absorption of infrared radiation. To understand and determine the degradation of infrared imaging and laser transmissometers under battlefield conditions, atmospheric constituents must be quantified. Specifically, the parameters of interest are the concentration of atmospheric gases including CO2, CH4, CO, O3, and H2O as well as aerosol size and distribution.
