GATS Sodium and Rayleigh Airborne Lidar

  1. Rayleigh: 5W lidar at 351nm that measures neutral densities and temperatures at altitudes from ~30 to 60 km with high spatial and temporal resolution
  2. GATS: 14W Na resonance lidar that would measure winds and temperatures via Rayleigh and Mie backscatter from ~15-30 km and via resonant backscatter from ~80-105 km
