Abstract: Many wind-field mapping applications require range-resolved atmospheric velocity measurements at long range and/or with a temporal resolution sufficient to investigate turbulence. We argue that this capability can be achieved only by coherent laser radar systems that transmit energetic (>1 mJ) pulses. We describe such a system and describe single-pulse measurement of the range-resolved line-of-sight velocities, and show that the instrument-limited reproducibility of the measurements is 0.4 ms−1.
