Abstract:

Recent activity with regard to development of a pulsed laser, remote crosswind measurement system is described. This includes a more complete theoretical formulation which includes the log-amplitude perturbation. In addition, cw experimental work used to verify the theoretical formulation and the design and construction of a new pulsed crosswind system are described. The system uses a double pulsed 1.06 micrometer NdYAG laser, a sixteen element arrayed receiver and space-time statistical averaging.
