Abstract : The four-dimensional fire-induced transmittance and turbulence effects module (FITTE) calculates transmittance and laser beam spread and wander for propagation paths through battlefield vehicular or hydrocarbon fires and also calculates radiance from the fire and/or fire plume. It can perform the transmittance and radiance calculations for a rectangular array of points and create an output file which can be used to add images of battlefield fires into scenes. This document contains both a technical description of the model and a user's guide. (AN)
