Paper Abstract

A model for predicting the radiometry for a resolved laser beam due to scattering in the maritime atmosphere, has been developed by the Electro-Optics group in the Atmospheric Propagation Branch at SPAWAR Systems Center, Pacific. The model predicts the power received at a sensor using local meteorological measurements of the current atmospheric conditions. Field experiments conducted in San Diego, CA were used to validate the predictions of the model. Radiometric calibrations of a CCD camera provided power measurements of a resolved laser to be taken from various senor-laser beam orientations. The performance of the laser scattering model is assessed from the field measurements.
