The report describes the overall and detail instrument design and initial acceptance test performance of a system for remote sensing of emissions. The instrument may be used to measure transmission of urban atmospheres, using a remote source or to measure emission from sources such as smokestacks. It is designed to measure the absorption or emission caused by pollution by scanning spectrally in the 3 to 5.5 micron and 7 to 13.5 micron regions. Data may be recorded on a strip chart recorder, a digital printer, and/or a magnetic tape recorder. The various sections of the report provide: A discussion of the system design followed by a description of component details; Setup procedures and operation; System performance in the laboratory and results of initial field tests; and Maintenance recommendations. The report also contains writing tables and reduced size drawings. (Author)
