Paper Abstract

A wave optics computer code developed for studying high energy laser propagation in the atmosphere for tactical and, more recently, for strategic applications has been converted to include the physics of the interaction of the light beam with the special environment anticipated to be encountered in a strategic scenario. Results showing beam quality after passage through plumes of various types will be presented along with a brief discussion of the mechanism for calculation and the underlying physics and assumptions used.
