The far-infrared coherent emission from short electron bunches has been detected and partially characterized for two source locations at the NSLS Source Development Lab (SDL) accelerator system. One location is designed to extract dipole edge radiation while the other extracts transition radiation produced a short distance downstream of the SDL linac. The coherently radiated energy per pulse is 10's of nJ, and depends quadratically on bunch charge. The spectral content agrees with the longitudinal bunch density as determined from other measurements.
