Paper Abstract

Atmospheric propagation experiments for active and passive EO systems were performed over a 2 and 8 km path. Single and double path propagation effects were studied using retroreflectors and hot point targets. The systems used include laser systems at 1.5 and 3.5 μm wavelength as well as imaging systems in the visible, 1-2 and 8-9 μm regions. A scintillometer operating at 0.8 μm wavelength was also used for the shorter path. Experimental data will be presented and evaluated concerning statistics. The results will be discussed mainly from a laser countermeasure point of view.
