3D Scanning Raman Depolarization LIDAR

Raymetrics' 3D scanning LIDAR is now available as a fully outdoor operational model designed for aviation, meteorology and environmental applications. The system comes with a large telescope and powerful laser, making it probably the most powerful eye-safe scanning aerosol LIDAR on the market, providing unparallelled data quality and effective range. Detecting up to three wavelengths, including co-polar and cross-polar channels, the LR111-ESS-D200 is probably the only 3D scanning LIDAR powerful enough to detect nitrogen Raman at 387nm, allowing for more accurate data and better particle distinction. Inbuilt climate control, UPS (for safe shutdown and automatic re-start on power loss), rain sensor and optional rain hood, make the system suitable for nearly all environments. The LR111-ESS-D200 model aerosol LIDAR can be used for a variety of purposes, including remote visibility measurement (Slant Visual Range, Vertical Optical Range), 3D cloud base height, fog detection, pollution and dust tracking and many more.
