Paper Abstract

We evaluate the accuracy of recently published, tractable yet approximate, analytic theory for describing the centroid-centered mean irradiance of beams propagated through atmospheric turbulence. Such theory, if accurate, is a highly desirable candidate for use in optical system performance calculations that perform active tracking.
