Paper Abstract

Beam-steering mirrors and long-range infrared sources can be used to enhance the coverage offered by bistatic long-path FTIR monitoring systems. Factors involved in mirror design for industrial applications are discussed, and data from a typical plant installation are presented. Moderately severe vibration was shown to have no discernable effect on results. Long-range infrared sources which allow one FTIR and two remote sources to monitor a one-kilometer fenceline are discussed, and data from an industrial installation are used to contrast FTIR operation at 120 - and 450-meter pathlengths.
