20 March 2003 Statistical study of EO propagation parameters in coastal areas
Author Affiliations +
The performances of Electro-Optical (EO) systems such as visible or infrared cameras, lasers, operating within the Marine Surface Boundary Layer (MSBL), i.e. at heights up to a few tens of meters above the sea surface, are disturbed by various propagation mechanisms: molecular and aerosol extinctions, refraction and turbulence. By using meteorological measurements collected in various coastal areas (French Atlantic coast, Mediterranean Sea, North Sea), we present in this paper, a statistical study of the distributions of some of the relevant EO propagation parameters.
