Title: COHERENT LIDAR SYSTEM FOR HIGH RESOLUTION MEASUREMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC WIND VELOCITY AND WATER VAPOR FIELDS
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $49,975.00
 

Abstract:

THIS EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE DESIGN OF A DIODE-PUMPED SOLID-STATE 2 UM COHERENT LASER RADAR FOR THE HIGH SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL RESOLUTION MEASUREMENT OF WIND VELOCITY AND WATER VAPOR CONCENTRATIONS IN THE ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYER. A DETAILED COMPUTER SIMULATION OF THE COHERENT LASER RADAR WIND AND DIAL MEASUREMENT PROCESS WILL BE USED TO DETERMINE SYSTEM DESIGN PARAMETERS. A PERFORMANCE TRADE STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED TO OPTIMIZE SYSTEM PARAMETERS. AN EXISTING FLASHLAMP-PUMPED 2 UM COHERENT LASER RADAR WILL BE USED TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINED WIND AND WATER VAPOR MEASUREMENT IN THE ATMOSPHERIC BOUNDARY LAYER. AN OVERALL SYSTEM DESIGN WILL BE DETERMINED USING THE RESULTS FROM THE SIMULATION EFFORT AND DEMONSTRATED MEASUREMENT RESULTS IN THE FIELD. CTI HAS RECENTLY DEMONSTRATED, IN THE LABORATORY, A DIODE-PUMPED 2 UM TM:YAG TRANSMITTER WITH OUTPUT ENERGIES OF APPROXIMATELY 5 MJ/PULSE AND 100 HZ PRF.
