Ball Corp. awarded NASA Earth Science HAWC-OAWL R&D contract Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. has received a contract from NASA to build a High-spectral-Resolution-Lidar for Aerosols Winds and Clouds - Using the Optical Autocovariance Wind Lidar to help scientists better understand how the wind transport of aerosols and water vapor affect air quality and cloud formation. The existing OAWL technology has successfully flown on NASA-funded test flights. The three-year, $4.3M contract award for HAWC-OAWL will allow Ball Aerospace to adapt OAWL to measure profiles of aerosol properties simultaneously with profiles of wind speed and direction, and to demonstrate the full system performance with additional airborne flight testing.
