Paper Abstract

A scanner was specifically designed for an airborne laser radar to detect wind hazard. Two plate glasses, which were spun oppositely, were applied to line scan, while a galvanometer scanner was applied to frame scan. This made it possible to maintain a wide scanning field of view (5 degrees X 5 degrees). As well as a large receiving antenna ((phi) 150) and a rapid scan speed (120 lines per second). In this paper, the analyses and calculations of this scanner were reported and the isolation of our optical system was evaluated. Some other scanners were mentioned in comparison with our system.
