Abstract:

A model is described for assessing the effects of scattering and absorption of infrared radiation by atmospheric aerosols and gases on the ranges at which surface targets can be detected against their natural backgrounds by a surface-based FLIR system. The equations from the model are implemented via a computer program which calculates detection range.
