Abstract
A high precision, adaptive, and low-cost laser velocimeter is proposed for aerodynamic applications. We adopt a new kind of optical Doppler frequency sensor to detect Doppler frequency shifts caused by air flows. High speed investigation of aerodynamics is enabled by the fast response times of the novel Doppler frequency sensors. It is proposed here to demonstrate to NASA the compact laser velocimeter for wind tunnel applications.
