Abstract:

During the 5-day periods of April 20 24 and May 4 8, 2015, a series of measurements designed to characterize various aerosol and atmospheric parameters were made in support the All Weather Tracker AWT Experiment that was conducted at the RSA TA-6 Test Range, located at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. Since the primary objective of the experiment was to investigate both active and passive polarimetric imaging methods in the short-wave infrared SWIR, efforts were taken to characterize the 2 atmospheric effects that most influence efficient electrometric EM propagation, i.e., ambient aerosols and optical turbulence.
