Abstract:

This is the FY 80 final report for a laser remote sensing program designed to investigate remote sensing techniques for the detection of jet aircraft exhaust gases. The specific tasks which were performed consisted of the following 1 continuation of feasibility demonstration of CO2 TEA laser remote sensing system and the detection of NO and C2H4 in the atmosphere, 2 continuation of laboratory absorption measurements of CO, NO, and C2H4, 3 initial laboratory investigation of suitability of laser remote sensing of hydrazine, UDMH, and MMH, 4 implementation of digital data acquisition and processing system, and 5 preliminary development of dual-laser DIAL system.
