Abstract

The feasibility of using a multistatic Doppler lidar system for measuring 3-dimensional vector winds is studied. In the multistatic Doppler lidar system, horizontal and vertical resolution are determined by the telescope field-of-view, laser divergence, and baseline separation distance between the laser and the telescope. It is shown that the lidar system provides accurate estimates of wind velocity within the tropospheric boundary laser with high spatial resolution. Detailed signal-to-noise calculation indicate that small transmit and receive apertures actually improve system performance.
