This report describes how to implement and use the Strategic High-Altitude Radiance Code SHARC. SHARC calculates atmospheric radiation for paths from 60 to 300 km altitude in the 2-40 micron spectral region. It models radiation due to NLTE Non-Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium molecular emissions which are the dominant sources at these altitudes. This initial version of SHARC includes the five strongest IR radiators, CO2, NO, O3, H20, and CO. The code is available on magnetic tape and can be obtained by written request to AFGLOPB.
