Abstract

In the past twenty years many LIDAR systems have been developed all over the world. These are systems which gain a wealth of data about static and dynamic characteristics of the atmosphere by sending a laser beam into the atmosphere and then measuring the signal back-scattered by its constituents. This instrumentation has been developed by scientists for scientific purpose and has all the characteristics of such instruments: it usually only functions when the scientist himself or his technicians make it work, and moreover it is made to work only in typical laboratory conditions. If an industry should produce it without major modification, its cost would probably be prohibitive and its performance would hardly satisfy the end user.
