AERO-OPTICAL EFFECTS

Explore the newest techniques and technologies used to mitigate the effects of air flow over airborne laser platforms

Aero-Optical Effects: Physics, Analysis and Mitigation delivers a detailed and insightful introduction to aero-optics and fully describes the current understanding of the physical causes of aero-optical effects from turbulent flows at different speeds. In addition to presenting a thorough discussion of instrumentation, data reduction, and data analysis, the authors examine various approaches to aero-optical effect mitigation using both flow control and adaptive optics approaches.

The book explores the sources, characteristics, measurement approaches, and mitigation means to reduce aero-optics wavefront error. It also examines the precise measurements of aero-optical effects and the instrumentation of aero-optics. Flow control for aero-optical applications is discussed, as are approaches like passive flow control, active and hybrid flow control, and closed-loop flow control.

Readers will benefit from discussions of the applications of aero-optics in relation to fields like directed energy and high-speed communications. Readers will also enjoy a wide variety of useful features and topics, including:
* Comprehensive discussions of both aero-effects, which include the effects that air flow has over a beam director mounted on an aircraft, and aero-optics, which include atmospheric effects that degrade the ability of an airborne laser to focus a beam
* A treatment of air buffeting and its effects on beam stabilization and jitter
* An analysis of mitigating impediments to the use of high-quality laser beams from aircraft as weapons or communications systems
* Adaptive optics compensation for aero-optical disturbances

Perfect for researchers, engineers, and scientists involved with laser weapon and beam control systems, Aero-Optical Effects: Physics, Analysis and Mitigation will also earn a place in the libraries of principal investigators in defense contract work and independent research and development.

Stanislav Gordeyev is an Associate Professor at the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. His expertise includes the investigation of aero-optical distortions caused by compressible turbulent flows around airborne systems.

Eric J. Jumper is the Roth-Gibson Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame. Although he has performed research in a wide range of topics, his present principal research focus is on the understanding of aero-optical phenomena.

Matthew R. Whiteley, PhD, is Vice President and Senior Scientist at MZA Associates Corporation in Dayton, Ohio. His research includes aero-optical beam control and sensing of atmospheric turbulence for laser propagation.
