Paper Abstract

Data used to characterize the optical properties of military obscurants are obtained in distance scales which may range from less than 10m to greater than 100m. Comparisons of data for the same optical parameters but measured over both large and small distance scales may show significantly different results. Methods for quantitatively comparing these parameters have not been developed. It is proposed that such comparisons can be achieved through statistical methods and by treating time dependent parameters such as transmission in terms of probability density functions. In this way, correlation coefficients can be determined between the two sets of data which can be used to quantitatively assess the degree of agreement.
