"This is a proposal to develop an integrated aero-optical test simulator code. The code will contain three elements, 1) an algorithm for producing physically plausible aero-optical properties and bounds on properties characterizing flows of interest, 2) analgorithm for converting these into aero-optical features of a flow described by a set of time-varying random phase screens, and 3) a code that will integrate these and propagate a wavefront through a typical test scenario with an output similar to thatprovided by the test diagnostics. This code will allow a user to run rapid simulated aero-optical tests that will be valuable for test planning and data interpretation. The Phase I program demonstrated the feasibility of key components of the aero-opticstest-bed, whose complete development, integration, and validation will be the subject of this Phase II effort. This computational test-bed will be capable of complete aero-optics simulations of complex aero-optic phenomena."
