Airborne lidars of the IAO SB RAS for sensing of optically dense media

  • V. S. ShamanaevEmail author
Optical Instrumentation


Design features and main characteristics of a series of airborne lidars developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics SB RAS are presented. Physico-technical parameters of lidars intended for sensing of optically dense media such as cloudiness, atmospheric pollutions, and sea water are considered.
