Paper Abstract

The Electro-Optical Systems Atmospheric Effects Library (EOSAEL) is a state-of-the-art collection of user oriented models and computer codes for quantifying the obscuration effects of natural and man-made contaminants on the propagation of radiation in the atmosphere. The EOSAEL models address the visible and near-infrared (0.2-2.0 μm), mid-infrared (3.0-5.0 μm), far-infrared (8.0-12.0 μm), and millimeter wave (10-350 GHz) regions of the spectrum plus 53 laser lines. The current EOSAEL includes sixteen models that will aid the researcher in determining: contrast and contrast transmission; laser beam jitter and wander; laser scattering by atmospheric aerosols; atmospheric transmission through fogs/hazes, rain, snow, various types of clouds and man-made smokes, dirt/dust, and self-screening grenades; probability of detection for static targets; and climatological conditions for select European locations. An overview will be presented showing the data bases used (where apglicable), the salient points of the EOSAEL models, and a typical scenario that may be constructed using this library.
