Abstract:

A FIELD OF VIEW MONITOR IS PROPOSED TO AUGMENT A BALLOONBORNE LIDAR SYSTEM WHICH WILL BE USED TO STUDY ATMOSPHERIC PROPERTIES IN THE ALTITUDE REGION FROM 35 KM TO THE GROUND. THE MONITOR WILL PROVIDE INFORMATION REGARDING TERRAIN AND CLOUD CONDITIONS IN THE LIDAR FIELD OF VIEW, AND SUCH KNOWLEDGE WILL SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCE THE ANALYSIS OF LIDAR DATA. THE BALLOONBORNE NADIR-LOOKING FIELD OF VIEW MONITOR WILL CONSIST OF AN INTENSIFIED CHARGE INJECTION DEVICE CAMERA WHICH WILL PROVIDE REAL TIME HIGH SPATIAL RESOLUTION VIDEO IMAGERY OF A 3 DEGREE BY 4 DEGREE FIELD UNDER STARLIGHT ILLUMINATION CONDITIONS. COALIGNED WITH THE CAMERA WILL BE A 10 PM RADIOMETER WHICH WILL PROVIDE VERY ACCURATE TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT WITHIN A 20 MR PIXEL. CORRELATION OF THE DATA FROM EACH OF THESE TWO STATE OF THE ART SENSORS WITH THAT FROM THE LIDAR WILL PROVIDE THE REQUIRED CLOUD AND GROUND TERRAIN INFORMATION.
