15 December 1995 Calibration of an inertial reference system (IRS) using the ground return of a Doppler lidar

For the measurement of the wind field from a moving platform one big challenge is the elimination of the Doppler shift due to platform motion. If the housekeeping data (platform velocity and attitude) are not accurate enough, a calibration to the ground return of the lidar is a possible solution. This presentation deals with the advantages and problems of such a procedure at the example of measurements obtained with the airborne Doppler lidar ADOLAR. Here a rectangular flight pattern from October 13, 1994 over the Nordsee is discussed together with the possibility of using this technique at a satellite.
