Abstract
OPTICAL COUNTERMEASURES RESEARCH REQUIRES ACCURATE SHORT-PATH AIRBORNE MEASUREMENT OF WAVELENGTH DEPENDENT ATMOSPHERIC EXTINCTION. THIS ATMOSPEHERIC TOTAL EXTINCTION COEFFICIENT HAS AEROSOL ABSORPTION, AEROSOL SCATTERING, AND WATER VAPOR MOLECULAR ABSORPTION COMPONENTS. CURRENT DEVICES MEASURES ONLY MONOCHROMATIC SINGLE-ANGLE AEROSOL SCATTERING COEFFICIENTS. THE DIFFERENCE CAN BE SIGNIFICANT, ESPECIALLY AT LARGER (10-12 MICROMETER) WAVELENGTHS. IN PHASE I WE WILL INVESTIGATE IN-CAVITY LASER EXTINCTIOMETERS AND DUAL-BEAM PHASE LOCKED RATIOMETRIC EXTINCTION TECHNIQUES THAT SHOW PROMISE OF MAKING DIRECT SHORT-PATH MEASUREMENTS OF THE TOTAL COMPOSITE ATMOSPHERIC EXTINCTION COEFFICIENT. THIS IS THE QUANTITY OF DIRECT RELEVENCE TO OPTICAL COUNTER- MEASURES TEST PROGRAMS IN COLLABORATION WITH TECHNICAL STAFF FROM THE NAVAL AIR SYSTEMS COMMAND.
