Instrument

DAWN
Doppler Aerosol WiNd Lidar

The Doppler Aerosol WiNd Lidar (DAWN) was developed by the NASA Langley Research Center. It operates in the 2-micron wavelength range and pulses at 10 Hz. It can measure at multiple different azimuth angles due to its wedge scanner. DAWN can also provide vertical profiles of the horizontal wind occurring below the aircraft it is flying on.
