Abstract : There is a critical requirement within the Army for the validation of the predictive models that define the effects of various types and concentrations of battlefield obscurants on the performance of electro-optical weapon and surveillance systems. A technique has been developed which will assist by producing accurate and comprehensive dimensional analysis of field-acquired digital images of smoke clouds. This report contains the temporal geometric growth measurements and object transport rates of the obscurants expended during the Smoke Week III field test conducted at Eglin AFB, August 1980.
