Paper Abstract

The tactical motivation for a compact and easily deployable remote sensing unit for hazardous material releases is described. The most important measurements such a unit could make for accurately determining the extent of a plume from a target or potential target is a range resolved profile of the wind within the vicinity of the strike zone. However, to make such measurements a new type of instrument is required which is inherently robust, compact, and efficient. To demonstrate that such an instrument is feasible, we have designed, built, tested, and performed an initial laboratory evaluation of a compact Doppler lidar system for tactical applications.
