Manifestation of aero-optical effects in a turbulent atmosphere in supersonic motion of a conical body

This paper presents results of the analysis of the mean intensity, intensity fluctuations, and regular and random shifts of optical beams propagating through a shock wave resulting from the supersonic motion of a conical body in a turbulent atmosphere. It is shown that aero-optical effects caused by a shock wave are suppressed with an increase in the optical turbulence. Quantitative data illustrating the degree of the manifestation of aero-optical effects for paths with different geometry and length depending on turbulent conditions of light propagation are presented.
