Abstract:

It is the purpose of this test plan to define an experiment to measure the peak power losses and temporal characteristics as a function of the Field-of-view of optical pulses propagating through clouds marine fogs. In addition to the propagation measurements the meteorological parameters describing the propagation path will be measured and used as inputs to computer codes to assess the measured results and for propagation prediction purposes. Of primary interest here are those frequencies in the blue-green portion of the spectrum which after propagating through a cloud, can penetrate sea water and be of use as a submarine-to-aircraft satellite communications system.
