Paper Abstract

An assessment is presented of obscuration by battlefield dust and smoke of downward viewing infrared sensors in the 3.5 - 4.2 μm atmospheric window for altitudes of 1000 m or less. For artillery-produced contaminants, dependences of target acquisition probabilities on intensity of incoming rounds (i.e., rate of aerosol production) and on optically weighted aerosol mass loadings are established.
