The Air Force Wright Laboratory has successfully flown two micron laser radars and is preparing to fly a third. These systems are designed to provide real-time 3D maps of the wind fields between the aircraft and the ground. This paper briefly describes these systems and the demonstrated performance of each. Future measurement efforts of this program ar also discussed.
