Paper Abstract

A backscatter lidar for unattended, stand-alone eye-safe operation has been developed by Vaisala. The design of the CT75K lidar ceilometer takes advantage of volume-produced optics, electronics, software, and mechanics. The CT75K combines four identical optical subassemblies of the standard 7.5 km ceilometer in an array and operates them in synchronous mode. Examples of cirrus cloud and boundary layer measurements are demonstrated.
