Paper Abstract

The major subject of the paper is advancing atmospheric transmission field measurement systems in response to new requirements. From the viewpoint of a complete field system installation, attention is given to the nature of the measurement and the capabilities and limitations in sensitivity, stability, and the time required for individual measurements. From the same system viewpoint calibration is reviewed with regard to concept, techniques, uncertainties and assumptions. Examples are given of system advances and these include making real-time measurements with automatic high-speed scanning, high sensitivity, wide spectral range and remote control. Special measurement conditions that are described include those encountered on the battlefield, in fog and precipitation, and in the presence of countermeasures.
