Title: Remote sensing of turbine engine gases. Final report 15 Jul 78-30 Sep 79

Abstract

This document is the final report for a laser remote sensing research program. The research conducted was designed to develop and demonstrate laser remote sensing techniques for monitoring jet aircraft exhaust gases. This effort was part of a larger program to develop remote sensing techniques for environmental monitoring and tactical detection and discrimination. The specific tasks which were performed consisted of the following: (1) development of an improved repetition rate miniature CO/sub 2/ TEA laser and incorporation into a differential-absorption LIDAR(DIAL) system, (2) laboratory demonstration of the frequency-doubled CO/sub 2/ TEA laser system by differential-absorption measurements of known gas samples (CO and NO), and (3) initial field feasibility demonstration of laser remote detection of CO in vehicular exhaust (automobile, tractor mower and Skycrane helicopter) at ranges up to 2.5 km. Each of these tasks is described in detail in the following sections of this report. In addition, supportive documentation is included in the accompanying appendices.
