Paper Abstract

The Advanced Ray Tracing with Earth Atmospheric Models (ARTEAM) aims at a description of the electro-optical propagation environment in the marine atmospheric surface layer. For given meteorological conditions, the model evaluates height- and range-resolved transmission losses, refraction and turbulence effects. These results are subsequently applied to an electro-optical sensor with given specifications to evaluate the effective range and performance of the sensor under the prevailing meteorological conditions. Finally, for specified sensor-target geometry, the model calculates characteristic parameters for geometrical and spectral intensity, scintillation, blur and image distortion. ARTEAM is developed with an extensive Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Windows environments.
