Low-Cost Atmospheric Turbulence Measurement Platform

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Koh Murai, Engineering Manager
Award Amount: $74,931.00
Abstract:
Current turbulence measurements are limited to pilot reports and measurements along a specific vertical or horizontal trajectory. Aside from the high cost, these methods do not provide information on turbulence patches, their size or persistence. This proposal combines emerging sensor… More
