Abstract : This report deals with the instrumentation used in searchlight techniques and probing of the atmosphere. The report has been divided into three parts. Part I contains articles which provide a generalized description of instrumentation and techniques employed in searchlight investigations. Part II contains more detailed descriptions and the technical specifications of individual instruments and component parts used specifically in searchlight techniques. Part III contains articles describing other devices and instruments used in atmospheric optics to measure transparency, aerosol content, light scattering and polarization, etc., either collaterally with or independent of searchlight techniques. Entries are arranged by author in each section. An author index is included. Entries appear in the form of full, summary, or partial translations, and abstracts. (Author)
