Paper Abstract

This paper addresses methods of modeling some of the dynamic effects that affect a laser beam propagation through the atmosphere. Among the components adn phenomena are adaptive optics, atmospheric turbulence with wind shear and beam steering, jitter, and integration of the energy on the target. The emphasis is on the development of simple but accurate models which are readily implemented in a physical optics code. The system of our immediate interest is described in a companion paper.' Figure 1 shows some aspects of space relay system.
