Paper Abstract

The Electro-Optical Systems Atmospheric Effects Library (EOSAEL) is a comprehensive library of computer codes dealing with atmospheric propagation effects. EOSAEL is a state-of-the-art computer library comprised of fast-running theoretical, semiempirical, and empirical computer programs (called modules) that mathematically describe various aspects of electromagnetic propagation and battlefield environments. The modules are connected through an executive routine, but often are exercised individually. The modules are more engineering oriented than first-principles. The philosophy is to include modules that give reasonably accurate results with the minimum in computer time for conditions that may be expected on the battlefield. EOSAEL models clear air transmission, transmission through natural and man-made obscurants, turbulence, multiple scattering, contrast and contrast transmission, and others. EOSAEL is available to the DoD community and eligible contractors free of charge. An overview of EOSAEL is presented, describing the background philosophy, current capability, and future direction.
