10 December 1992 Portable nanojoule backscatter lidar for environmental sensing
Author Affiliations +
The eye-safe (500 nJ per pulse) portable lidar with a wavelength of 0.840 micrometers has been designed. Operating as a photon counter, it allows to measure a distance to objects within a 5 km range with an accuracy of 5 m and backscatter coefficients with an accuracy of 2 * 10-7 (msr)-1. Results of some applications are presented.
