Abstract
Based upon nVision Technology employee's experience developing the DARPA One Shot system and the VALR wind measurement system through another DoD customer, nVision Technology proposes using scintillation-based wind measurement techniques for both passive wind measurement as well as pseudo-profiling along the entire range from the shooter to the target. By modifying existing hardware nVision can quickly adapt the system to perform passive measurements as well as provide a level of wind profiling that will increase the probability of hit on target.
