Paper Abstract

A backscattering Lidar system has gone through an automation process for operation through a high-speed internet gateway in a fiber-optic network interconnecting research groups for experimental demonstrations of specific technologies or novel Internet applications. This network is essentially a large, geographically distributed laboratory facility, available worldwide to the research community, for field trials of optical components and equipment, for fundamental and applied research in optical transmission and networking technologies, and for the development of advanced Internet applications. The description of the steps taken to automate this system will be given in detail. The laser source, a meteorological mini-station, a sliding rooftop door, and a trasient recorder for acquisition were adapted for LABVIEW controlling and to be put into a web station for control through the internet and enhancing its operational capabilities. This upgrade in the system was lowcost and can provide multiple applications such as long-term operation during field campaigns and/or as an educational tool to the lidar technique and atmospheric studies.
