Airborne Doppler Lidar Analyses and Adaptive Targeting System (ADLAATS) (pdf)

wind_windflags

Doppler lidar wind and aerosol data from airborne and ground based lidar systems, such as TODWL, P3 and TWOLF, is transmitted, processed, and visualized by an operational software package called the Airborne Doppler Lidar Analyses and Adaptive Targeting System (ADLAATS). ADLAATS provides high spatial and time resolution data that can potentially be utilized by US Army systems such as the current Integrated Meteorological System or a future integrated system such as the Army Distributed Common Ground System. These data can also potentially be used within tactical decision aids and weather impact decision aids to assist the US Army in making command and operation decisions.

 

On-board Real Time Mission Management and Visualization Systems for Airborne DWL (I-LIMMS) (pdf)

ilimms

In 2005, Simpson Weather Associated began working with the Navy's Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop an In-flight Lidar Integrated Mission Management System (I-LIMMS) that provides real-time 4-D visualization of airborne Doppler Wind Lidar (DWL) data aboard an aircraft as well as a real-time system managing of both mission flight strategy and the lidar scanning strategy. Integrated into I-LIMMS are ADLAATS for DWL signal processing, WRF model for meso-scale forcasts and Google Earth for visualization (pdf).
