Paper Abstract

There is continuing interest in the comparative performance of thermal imaging systems operating in the 3 to 5 micrometers and 8 to 12 micrometers bands under maritime conditions. As a contribution to this, the following paper describes atmospheric transmission calculations carried out for both bands using the LOWTRAN 7 code based on weather observations obtained from the U.K. Meteorological Office for 28 maritime weather stations.
