Center Independent Research & Development: GSFC IRAD

Design and Integration for the Cloud-Aerosol Multi-Angle Lidar

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

NASA and GSFC have awarded an SBIR “Select” Phase 2 effort to develop a scanning lidar transceiver to be part of the new Cloud-Aerosol Multi-Angle Lidar (CAMAL) instrument for use with the ER-2 high altitude aircraft.  This IRAD will fund the efforts required to continue the development of the CAMAL instrument and to ensure that the SBIR “Select” effort will smoothly integrate with the CAMAL instrument.

The purpose of this project is to design and build a new scanning Lidar instrument for use on the NASA ER-2 high altitude aircraft.
