The long-term goals of the research are to understand and assess the effects of the atmosphere on the detection of targets at low altitudes over sea with LR-IRST systems. Effects considered are transmission losses due to aerosols and water vapor, effects of turbulent fluctuations of the air temperature on blurring and scintillation, and the effect of the vertical temperature gradients on IR refractivity.
