Paper Abstract

The use of backscatter lidars as a research tool to remotely sense atmospheric parameters has been well established. But, the use of lidars as an operational tool to predict the performance of electro-optical (EO) systems during periods of adverse weather has not. A model correlating lidar derived atmospheric transmission and FLIR (forward looking infrared) performance has been developed and an international field program, FLAPIR, has been conducted to collect the data necessary to evaluate the model.
