Abstract

An experiment for airborne Doppler lidar measurement of wake vortices generated by a large transport aircraft in the free atmosphere has been successfully carried out. In this paper, the description of the experiment, data processing procedure, and measurement results are given. It was shown that the use of smoke generators placed on large transport aircraft wings allows some high-quality wake vortex measurements with 2 μm coherent Doppler lidar installed in a second aircraft.
