Abstract : The Moderate Spectral Atmospheric Radiance and Transfer (MOSART) computer program calculates atmospheric transmission and radiation in the ultraviolet region through the microwave spectral regions (0.2 microns to infinity or 0 - 50,000 cm per sec. The spectral resolution is variable from a value of 2 cm1 upward in increments of 1 cm1. It contains features which have been extracted from the MODTRAN code developed by the Geophysics Division (PL/GPOS) of the Air Force Phillips Laboratory and the APART code developed by Photon Research Associates (PRA). Because of the reouirement that MOSART be compatible with various codes used in the SSGM (Strategic Scene Generation Model), the overall structure of this version of MOSART closely follows that of APART. However, MOSART contains all the MODTRAN atmospheric features and is easily used for that codes usual point-to-point calculations. This volume provides the user with information describing the installation of MOSART. The other volumes describe running the code (Vol. II), technical discussion (Vol. III), and the structure of MOSART (Vol. IV). To provide users with on-line assistance, this volume is available in a series of "html" files that can be viewed using the MOSART Input Builder or the MOSAIC Software. (AN)
