The report describes the development of an infrared sensor operating in the 11 to 20 micron region using computerized inversion programs to yield temperature and water vapor profiles of the earths atmosphere up to 6 km. The development of the sensor system hardware and software is summarized for the period 1968 through 1973, and given in detail for system development during 1974. Atmospheric profiles acquired and processed under various atmospheric conditions are presented. The development work is continuing in 1975 under ONR contract N00014-75-C-0940. Author
