This paper overviews the application of low resolution transmissometer systems to field measurement of spectral transmission through the atmosphere. A discussion of atmospheric models, such as the Air Force LOWTRAN and the Army E-OSAEL computer Codes is followed by a description of a typical low resolution transmissometer system. The procedure to calibrate the transmissometer in order to produce absolute transmission is presented. Some typical problems associated with field measurement of atmospheric propagation is given. The remainder of the paper deals with spectral transmission results in the 3-5 micrometer region during GRAF I Atmospheric Trials1 in Europe. The data analyzed was provided by the Night Vision and Electra-Optics Laboratory for use in this paper.
