Abstract:

Transit-time lidar is being used experimentally by the Army for remote wind measurement. The system developed at White Sands Missile Range uses lidar backscatter from patterns of irregularities in atmospheric dust concentration to measure the component of the wind normal to the laser beam. The system is described, and experimental data on wind measurements from 2 to 15 msec at a range of 250 m are presented.
