1 European manufacturer of Lidars for Environmental Observations Laurent Sauvage, Chief scientist, september 2010, WMO, Geneva

2 One atmosphere, many hazards Volcano- logy Atmospheric Pollution Climate Change / Atmospheric research Airport Safety Wind Farming Meteorology Real time atmospheric remote observations Aerosol lidars Wind lidars

3 Corporate ID Established people Optoelectronics / Atmospheric Physicists / Software engineers Partnerships with CEA/LSCE, IPSL, ONERA 95% sales non domestic Turnover : ’08-4.7M€, ‘09- 7M€,’10-??M€

4 4 Global Network 150 lidars units deployed

5 Polarisation Lidar for Aerosol Research and advisory system (N2 Raman option)

6 Potential contribution to GALION Hdf Format, compatible with MPLNET format. We promote the continuous vertical monitoring and give new customers a contact to main research networks (ex. Juëlich, RISOE, ETZH in Europe, Hongkong, NPL India and Indoniesan Met bureau for 7’seas ) Participate to QA effort for the ALS Specific support for some stations (but not permanent, will need extra funding) Providing ezsunphotometer coupling software for a better calibration 6 NOT GOOD FOR CLIMATE MONITORING Chibolton obs., univ. Reading GOOD FOR CLIMATE OBSERVATIONS 20 potential sites Some co-located with sunphotometers Air quality monitoring in a metro station

7 Participation to inter-comparison campaign data sample during LICL2009
