Paper Abstract

Range-resolved crosswind measurements are required for improved ballistics accuracy in a variety of planetary boundary layer applications. In these environments, the effects wind turbulence can cause large errors in estimates derived using conventional Velocity Azimuth Display (VAD) lidar techniques. This paper presents the results from two recent measurement campaigns employing the VAD algorithm and Monte Carlo performance predictions of a novel velocity- pattern tracking concept for precision range-resolved crosswind sensing in the presence of wind turbulence.
