The Naval Ordnance Test Station, Pasadena Annex, in conjunction with the Navy's Deep Submergence Systems Project, has initiated a program designed to improve underwater photo-optical systems. Our program objectives were based on the fact that the scattering characteristics of water form the major barrier limiting visibility. One objective is centered around improving overall system efficiency while the other is concerned with increasing the range of visibility. In other words, the first objective admits a limited visibility condition, but assumes that adequate visibility may be maintained at much lower power levels. The second objective is directly concerned with means to reduce the detrimental effects of scattered light. We've labeled these two main divisions of our effort "State of the Art Optimization" and "Extended Range Feasibility. "
