Abstract
Coherent lidar systems based on eyesafe solid-state laser technology are rapidly emerging in ruggedized packages. The airport terminal area presents several measurement scenarios appropriate for application of pulsed coherent lidar sensors. This paper briefly reviews the status of coherent lidar technology and presents results produced with a mobile flashlamp- pumped 2.09 micrometers coherent lidar sensor for windshear detection and measurement, wind turbulence estimation, and wake vortex detection and tracking.
