Several lidar applications are reviewed including short range solid target measurements with extremely high velocity resolution, air velocity measurements, altimetry and wind tunnel measurements of air velocity utilizing the dual beam scatter method and carefully sized artificial aerosols. The use of optical fibers and diode lasers permits construction of devices that are relatively inexpensive and rugged with high sensitivity. The signal processing system is based on digital Fourier transform techniques and is implemented on a DOS-based computer utilizing a data translation array processor board.
