Abstract : This is the FY 81 final report on the program entitled 'Remote Sensing of Turbine Engine Gases'. The specific tasks which were conducted during FY 81 consisted of the following: (1) the feasibility demonstration of a dual-laser differential-absorption LIDAR(DIAL) system for the remote sensing of CO, NO, and C2H4, (2) the development of a data acquisition and processing system for the dual-laser DIAL system, (3) the laser remote sensing of CO and C2H4 in the exhaust of a stationary jet aircraft, and (4) the laser remote sensing of hydrazine, monomethylhydrazine (MMH), and unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine (UDMH).
