Doppler Lidar Systems

What is “Doppler Lidar ”? – Monitoring air traffic safety

Integrated Lidar and Radar System

  • Lidar detects dry microbursts in conditions with no precipitation.
  • Radar detects wet microburst accompanied with precipitation and/or developed cumulonimbus.
  • Combining the two sensors, ground base all weather observation system including low level wind shear detection is integrated.
