Guidestar’s atmospheric optical turbulence sensing technology remotely measures atmospheric turbulence strength. Guidestar uses these measurements in combination with a proprietary model to estimate a number of localized weather parameters to support operational decision making. In addition, Guidestar’s model can use weather forecast data to predict atmospheric optical turbulence.
Guidestar’s atmospheric turbulence monitoring and prediction package combines physical sensors for remote sensing of atmospheric turbulence strength with physics-based models to measure and predict localized weather-related parameters. Forecasts of atmospheric optical turbulence conditions are needed for operational planning for directed energy, free space laser communications, remote sensing, and astronomical observatory applications. We provide relevant, real-time data and forecasts to enhance operational planning and decision making.
