Testing Enables Operation on Airborne Platforms
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.
