Abstract:

The Barnes Model 14-WP transmissometer is one of the principle optical path calibration instruments of the Air Force Avionics Laboratorys Targeting Systems Characterization Facility. A simple test based on LOWTRAN IIIB was devised to certify system calibration while installed on an eight kilometer optical path. In addition, an optical path anomaly was investigated. Results are discussed and recommendations for additional calibration tests and new procedures are made. Author
