Abstract:

The nonlinear aerosol vaporization and breakdown effects NOVAE high-energy laser propagation model has had a number of improvements added to it since 1984. Many of these improvements address aspects of vertical or slant path propagation of concern to operators of existing or anticipated laser systems. These upgrades include calculation of stimulated Raman scattering and vertical profiling of turbulence and wind. A wide range of aerosol calculations and rectangular laser apertures are also documented. This document also describes operation of the current NOVAE model.
