Abstract
IN THIS PHASE I, EFFORT WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF A PASSIVE REMOTE SENSING INFRARED DEVICE THAT ACCURATELY AND IN REAL-TIME PROFILES ATMOSPHERIC TEMPERATURE, HUMIDITY, AND REFRACTIVE INDEX. THIS PROPOSED EFFORT IS A OGICAL EXTENSION OF A PREVIOUSLY THEORETICAL AND NUMERICAL ALGORITHM STUDY WITH THE ARMY RESEARCH OFFICE. SINCE THEIR CHARTER IS FOR BASIC THEORETICAL RESEARCH ONLY , WE ARE PROPOSING A RELATED SIBR EFFORT TO BRING THEORY TO PRACTICE. IN PHASE I WE WILL DEMONSTRATE ENGINEERING FEASIBILITY BY ADAPTING OUR EXISTING RADIOMETER TO RECOVER TEMPERATURE PROFILES IN ACTUAL FIELD CONDITIONS AND THEN DEVELOP AN OPTIMIZED HARDWARE DESING FOR PHASE II CONSTRUCTION.
