  2. Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose developing a new observational capability for measuring upper atmosphere (20-Km to 200-Km+ altitude) wind and temperature dynamics, based on Doppler imaging of Limb concentrations of NO, N2O, and CO2 called the Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder. The principle of operation is that by measuring the Doppler shift of trace gases created by the differential velocity betwee ...
