Paper Abstract

An imaging system with a narrow field of view was used to measure the overall atmospheric MTF of an horizontal path and the turbulence MTF at the same time and over the same optical path over the visible and near IR. Results suggest that the atmospheric MTF is composed not only of turbulence MTF alone. Image quality is found to be degraded by aerosols, although the spatial frequencies of degradation were up to 5 tp 15 cycles per mrad rather than radian.
