An infrared (IR) or optical signal propagating along a 'line-of-sight' horizontal or slant path near the earth's surface can encounter substantial perturbations. These perturbations result in refractive distortions (low-frequency modulations that can amplify or reduce a signal) and scintillation (a higher frequency fluctuation in signal intensity). In an effort to elucidate the above issues a field test was conducted at the Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC) at China Lake, CA, during July 2001… CONTINUE READING
