    (a) Title 
    Modification of a coherent lidar
    (b) Objective
    Coherent LIDAR systems are commonly used in the wind turbine industry to measure wind speed and direction. A LIDAR system has been developed for DRDC Valcartier using telecommunications components under contract W7701-145727/001/QCN. In principle, a coherent LIDAR system is more sensitive than a direct-detection LIDAR system. In practice, this has yet to be proven; that is the intent of this contract. The coherent LIDAR system needs to be modified to increase its range and quantify the detectivity of distant targets.
