Abstract

In preparation of ESA's upcoming Earth Explorer mission Aeolus which strives for the global observation of wind profiles from the ground to the lower stratosphere deploying the first-ever satellite-borne wind lidar system ALADIN, the ALADIN airborne demonstrator (A2D) has been developed at DLR (German Aerospace Center). Due to its representative design and operating principle, the A2D provides valuable information on the wind measurement strategies of the satellite instrument as well as on the optimization of the wind retrieval and related quality-control algorithms. Hence, it represents an essential testbed for the planned calibration and validation activities after the launch of Aeolus which is scheduled for end of August 2018.
