This thesis presents a computer simulation program designed to predict the performance of a laser designator in an operational environment. It uses aspects of Fourier optical theory, atmospheric modulation transfer function, atmospheric transmittance, and turbulence to analyze the spot size and the power on a target. The guidance system requires the specific power and spot size on a target to track it. So the optimum laser designator for special military purpose can be chosen by the output of this program for a particular atmospheric condition.
