Doppler lidar StreamLine enables the visualisation of various types of turbulence that can affect aviation safety.
An example of such is wingtip vortices, which are trails of air that form from each wingtip and remain in the air after the passage of the aircraft.
Another type of turbulence, one that affects flight operations in mountainous areas, is mountain waves. Mountain waves are the oscillations that form down wind of a mountain when air currents are forced upwards by the mountain.
StreamLine is used to ascertain and monitor such meteorological phenomena. In this way, it is contributing to today’s aviation safety.
