Title: Arete Active Downrange Crosswind Sensor for Small Arms Fire Control
Agency: DOD
Contract: W15QKN-13-C-0025
Award Amount: $99,955.00
 

Abstract:

Arete Associates proposes to develop a stand-alone active crosswind sensor operating at the eye safe wavelength of 1.5 microns. The sensor is based on a novel design using a single beam, and a single-channel under-resolved receiver. The error on the crosswind measurement will be less than 1.5 m/s for winds from 0 to 20 m/s, up to a range of 1.5 km. The sensor system will meet the objective SWaP requirements listed in the solicitation, which will make it suitable for day/night one-man operation.
