Abstract:

A facility has been completed to measure atmospheric transmission by combining measurement techniques based on laser-line extinction, high-resolution Fourier spectroscopy, and gas filter correlation spectroscopy. Essential features of this measurement system are described, and initial measurements are presented of 0.1cm-resolution atmospheric transmission using a 5-km overwater path at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. Concurrent absolute transmission measurements at several DF laser wavelengths between 3.6 and 4.1 micrometers have been used to provide absolute transmission calibrations for the spectra. Author
