Michigan Aerospace Successfully Qualifies A/C Wind Measurement Instrument

Testing Enables Operation on Airborne Platforms

Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) tells ANN that it has successfully vibration-tested a tunable LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) receiver for flight operation aboard a high-altitude aircraft. The testing was performed in conjunction with, and funded by, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

 This successful test represents a significant advancement in highly- accurate, tunable instruments for measuring atmospheric properties from challenging aircraft platforms. Michigan Aerospace Corporation is a world leader in Fabry-Perot based devices that measure properties such as wind speed and direction, density, and temperature in the atmosphere.

The company specializes in building instruments that can operate in harsh environments on the ground, aircraft, and spacecraft. Applications include weather forecasting, turbulence detection, guidance and control.
