Abstract : Get Signature Modeling. I. Atmospheric Transmission of 1.06 Micrometers. Research and development technical rept.,Gomez,Richard B. ;DA-1-T- 061102-B-53-A1-T-061102-B-53-A-19ECOM5445(*infrared radiation, atmospheres), (*coherent radiation, atmosphere models), (*spectrum signatures, surface targets), scattering, absorption spectra, meteorological phenomena, infrared lasers, light transmission, light hominglaser beams, near infrared radiation, neodymium lasers, *atmospheres, *attenuation the results of a literature search and subsequent theoretical analysis conducted to determine the characteristics of atmospheric transmission at 1.06 micrometers wavelength are presented. The effects of molecular scattering, molecular absorption, aerosol scattering, and aerosol absorption are considered. Atmospheric transmission at 1.54 micrometers is compared with the transmission at 1.06 micrometers. In addition, problem areas which must be resolved to enable one to make adequate transmission predictions are discussed in the report.
