Abstract:

This document describes the AFRLRHDO produced Laser Hazard Analysis Software LHAZ version 5.0. LHAZ 5.0 is a Microsoft Windows desktop analysis tool. It implements the ANSI Z136.1-2007 version of the ANSI Z136.1 standard. It is a tool for trained laser safety officers to predict laser classification, maximum permissible exposures MPE, nominal ocular hazard distances NOHD, Optical Density OD requirements for laser eye protection LEP or laser protective materials for both direct and indirect laser exposures. LHAZ 5.0 is written in C as a Plug-in to the AFRLRHD Application Framework. The LHAZ 5.0 computational engine is the Laser Threat Modeling Components LTMC library. LTMC is a reusable C Library.
