An airborne two-channel KrF laser fluorosensor was tested from a Convair 580-T over targets at the Nevada Test Site and at the Naval Petroleum Reserve and Santa Barbara Channel in California. The two spectral-channel system (295 and 395 nm) successfully detected a variety of pollutant-type materials on the ground, both at night and in full daylight.
