Paper Abstract

A method for estimation of aircraft wake vortex parameters (coordinates of axis and circulation of vortices) from raw data measured by a pulsed coherent Doppler lidar “Stream Line” has been offered. By numerical simulation we found optimal measurement parameters, with which it is possible to obtain information about the wake vortices, despite the low level of echo signal inherent to this lidar. The method was tested in an experiment at the airfield of Tomsk airport. The results of the experimental data processing are consistent with theoretical calculations for the type of aircrafts involved in this experiment.
