Abstract
LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology plays important roles in NASA's space missions. Specifically in KSC's launch vehicles operations, break-through in LIDAR technology could provide ability to economically measure incremental ballistic wind velocities along the predicted trajectory of launch vehicles at remote. The most critical component in a LIDRA is its laser scanner, which delivers laser pulse to target with desirable field of view (FOV). Most of existing LIDARs uses rotating or oscillating mirror for scanning, resulting in several drawbacks:
