Abstract:

A program has been carried out to make modifications to the Lockheed-Huntsville Mobile Laser Doppler Velocimeter LDV system to calibrate and operate the system at the John F. Kennedy JFK Airport to obtain a data base of wind, wind shear, and wake vortex measurements and to assess the basic operational capabilities of the system based on these measurements. The basic operational capabilities, resolution, and integrity of a scanning LDV for the remote sensing of winds, wind shear, and wake vortices at terminal areas have been established. Volume II, 342 pages, contains appendixes. Author
