Abstract:

A METHOD FOR AUTOMATIC MEASUREMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC REFRACTION BETWEEN TARGET AND RECEIVER BASED UPON MEASUREMENT OF THE DISPERSION IN THE TARGET IMAGE RESULTING FROM THE ATMOSPHERIC REFRACTION IS PROPOSED. THE DISPERSION WILL BE MEASURED USING A COMBINATION OF WAVELENGTH SELECTIVE OPTICS, ARRAYS OF SOLID-STATE SENSORS, AND A PC-CLASS COMPUTER. THE AUTOMATIC REFRACTION CORRECTOR (ARC) WILL BE TESTED ON ASTRONOMICAL OBJECTS (E.G. THE MOON) WITH KNOWN REFRACTION VERSUS ALTITUDE RELATION. SEVERAL CONFIGURATIONS FOR THE WAVELENGTH SELECTIVE OPTICS WILL BE TESTED. UTILITY OF DIFFERENT ALGORITHMS TO REMOVE TURBULENT DISTORTIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND TESTED FOR PROPAGATION UNDER TERRESTRIAL CONDITIONS.
