A system of atmospheric remote sensing instruments that utilize a common phased-array acoustic antenna so as to take temperature and wind measurements over a wide range of altitudes. One of the atmospheric remote sensing instruments in the system is a monostatic SODAR that takes wind measurements by ...

K Russell Peterman, Charles Riese, Michael J Smith: Phased array acoustic antenna system. Radian Corporation, Klauber & Jackson, April 23, 1996: US05509304 (15 worldwide citation)

A sound detection and ranging (SODAR) system for taking wind measurements by sending out acoustic pulses and then measuring acoustic energy reflected back to the instrument by the atmosphere. The acoustic pulses are formed using digital beamforming technology which allows the acoustic pulses to be s ...

A digitally-controlled pulse shaper (DCPS) is provided which precisely controls the shape of the leading and trailing edges of a transmit pulse in a radar wind profiler, or pulsed-radar. In the case of pulse coding, where phase transitions are used to segment an otherwise longer pulse, the intra-pul ...
