Abstract:

Oceanit will demonstrate the feasibility of a compact, lightweight, eye-safe lidar suitable for aerosol gradient detection. The system will be based on an erbium fiber laser operating at 1.55:m, currently being developed at Oceanit as part of 3D scanning ceilometer. The laser can operate at greater power than other systems using non-eye-safe wavelengths thus eliminating many of the problems associated with low power aerosol LIDAR systems. Phase I efforts will consist of analysis and modeling of a lidar based on this technology, optimized for high sensitivity aerosol detection. Additionally, efforts will include the development of the prototype design and estimation of final production costs.
