The dusty atmosphere of the battlefield can seriously impede the performance of many electro-optical systems. The Smoke Week III tests were conducted at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, in August 1980, by the Program Managers Office for SmokeObscurants to measure the effects of battlefield environments on such systems. A part of those tests consisted of generating dust by detonating high explosives at the terrain surface. The work described in this report was performed to determine the atmospheric loading effects of those explosives and the relevant properties of the terrain. The report provides the measurements made and the results obtained and describes the terrain tested. Author
