Lab demonstrator of a lidar module

Abacus Laser develops and distributes lidar modules for wind measurement. These include a narrow-band reference laser, a pulsed single-frequency laser and detection by optical interference (heterodyne detection).

Our Modul LiTra S is based on optical fiber technology from the telecommunications industry and is thus particularly robust. With our lidar we can perform wind measurements with a typical range of 2 to 4 kilometers. In favorable conditions, clouds can be detected in up to 20km distance.

The corresponding data sheet can be found here.
Here are some example measurements.

Currently we are planning a lidar module based on 2.1 μm solid-state laser technology for wind measurements with a range of 30 to 50 km (horizontal).
