Mobile lidar complex for environmental monitoring of the atmosphere

The complex is designed for rapid remote identification of the physical and chemical composition of the atmosphere.

The complex allows to solve the following tasks:

  • identify the location and track the evolution of natural and synthetic aerosols in the atmosphere;
  • investigate the physical structure of aerosols (liquid drops, solid crystalline particles, etc.) and assess the integral size of the particles;
  • remotely measure the concentration of gases in the atmosphere, the absorption lines of which coincide with the range of laser radiation;
  • remotely determine the speed and direction of wind at different altitudes;
  • forecast dangerous situations.


  • Technological disasters: fires, gas leaks, air pollution
  • Environment in large cities: NOx, SOx, NH3, chlorofluorocarbons, hydrocarbons, aerosols
  • Global ecology: ozone in the upper atmosphere, aerosols, CO2
  • Military conflicts: chemical attacks
  • Aviation safety: wind direction and speed, turbulence
  • Meteorology: wind direction and speed, turbulence, cloud structure, humidity
