Paper Abstract

Questions concerning data types required for electro-optical obscuration modeling of the "dirty battlefield" are addressed. The philosophy is taken that "modeling should lead measurements" in setting requirements and a framework is established to examine questions from this viewpoint. Specific examples for modeling hygroscopic growth effects, fire products and path radiance are given. The major emphasis is on transmission and radiance but other factors required for modeling and which influence the accuracy of measurements are also addressed.
