Micro Pulse LiDAR - Model MPL - Atmospheric Air Monitoring System
Our Micro Pulse LiDARs use photon-counting detectors with high quantum efficiency at the chosen wavelength, coupled with high pulse rate, lower energy per pulse lasers. When combined with extremely stable optics this efficient approach to photon management leads to much higher sensitivity than big pulse alternatives for detecting and monitoring ambient air particulate, monitoing emissions, monitoring opacity, ensuring urban air quality, atmospheric and dust monitoring. In comparison, millipulse technologies use low pulse rate, high energy per pulse lasers. This often means higher instrument power requirements and larger physical units. Big lasers also tend to overheat and require more labor-intensive cooling systems. Required periods of time when units are switched off to cool make them undesirable as part of early warning systems.
From enhancing weather forecasts to monitoring ambient air quality and increasing air traffic control safety, Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) is your trusted partner in remote atmospheric monitoring. Providing data in real time, this sophisticated laser remote sensing system uses the most advanced single-photon-counting detectors trusted by NASA. Make the fastest and most accurate decisions based on the reliable information from the MPL’s continuous and autonomous monitoring.
