The Satellite Applications Catapult is supporting Imperial College on an NSTP-2 proposal related to the design of a LiDAR instrument. The purpose of this feasibility study is to assess the technical viability and usefulness of a tuneable LiDAR technology for vegetation or atmospheric monitoring. The output of the study would be the design of a LiDAR product together with a high level mission concept.
We are looking for a partner with an interest in developing a LiDAR instrument based on the laser developed by Imperial College London (WP2 on this diagram). Expertise is required with the design of the detector (WP2.2) together with Imperial College and with the definition of the LiDAR design (WP2.4).
The total project cost would be up to £200k (approx. 70% funded). The cost related to the required expertise would be in the region of ~£50-£60k. (approx.70% funded).
