Paper Abstract

The US Naval Research Laboratory has an ongoing research effort in the continuous observation of the maritime environment for free space optical communications. One of the goals of our research program is to characterize the behavior of the maritime environment for lasercomm systems, and use the data gathered from the Lasercomm Test Facility (LCTF) at NRL-Chesapeake Bay Detachment (CBD) to develop a method of predicting the global availability of maritime lasercomm. The LCTF has provided volumes of information about maritime laser propagation and atmospheric turbulence. Highlights of the work on the characterization of the maritime atmosphere are provided in this paper.
