Paper Abstract

For the past 6 years, the Ft. Belvoir Meteorological Team has used the NOAA Wave Propagation Laboratory developed and Lockheed built path integrated optical scintillometer. This instrument has and continues to serve us well. Through research funding by the Army Test and Evaluation Command we were able to procure a new instrument for the measurement of Cn2 which is based on holographic techniques. The 'HOLODAR' was developed by Dove Electronics, Inc. of Rome, N.Y. In this paper we describe the instrument and provide comparison data with the existing Lockheed system. It is our hope that HOLODAR can be used as a calibration reference for optical turbulence measurements.
