  1. Low-Cost Automated Aerosol Lidar for Air Quality Assessment and Prediction

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Oceanit showed the feasibility of a low-cost, compact, lightweight, eye-safe LIDAR suitable for aerosol gradient detection in a Phase 1 effort. The system is based on an eye-safe laser being developed at Oceanit as part of a 3D scanning ceilometer. The laser can operate at greater power than other systems using non-eye-safe wavelengths, thus it eliminates many of the problems associated with low ...
