AbstractThis proposal describes research and development to be completed during Phase II of an SBIR, building on the accomplishments of Phase I, to develop meteorological sensors based on fiber optic technology, for use at sea. While the ultimate goal continuesto be an entire meteorological suite of fiber-based instruments, the emphasis of this SBIR project remains primarily on two types of sensors: A humidity probe made from polymer-coated optical fiber, and a wind-profiling Doppler lidar in which all theinternal optics are fiber-based. These new approaches have been made feasible by recent technological advances in fiber optics for the commercial telecommunications industry.Background information and the description of previous tests and results are briefly summarized, and the reader is referred to the Phase I Final Report for more details. A list of technical objectives is itemized for both the humidity sensor and the lidar,as well as for the
