Paper Abstract

This paper deals with the analysis of airborne targets close to the horizon. During the LAPTEX in Crete, 1996, FGAN-FfO took IR-sequences of several aircraft in different altitudes. The atmospheric conditions often changed within one day, leading to different transmissivity and refractivity. The influence of these effects on the observation range is analyzed. Measurements are compared with model predictions. Especially sub-refractive conditions with the tendency to create double images are discussed in detail.
