Who we are

For more than 20 years, ALA founders have conducted academic research dealing with the profiling of the atmosphere via remote sensing.
Pioneers in the field.
This extended experience culminated in the constitution of ALA ADVANCED LIDAR APPLICATIONS, with the aim of offering this expertise to the word of the environmental monitoring.
ALA was born in 2012 and incorporated as spin-off company of Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and the Italian National Research Council.
Today ALA has a full employed staff operating in a multidisciplinary context.
It is very active on the Chinese environmental monitoring front and collaborate with many companies with both into inside and outside the academic world.

Our Mission

The analysis of airborne particulate matter is a very high profile concern since it has been proved that exposure to such particles can badly affect human health.
Pollutants can be transported far away from their source, LIDAR devices survey large regions of the atmosphere, retrieving PM space-time distribution and providing valid help in identifying the sources.
ALA mission is an ongoing process based on a very strong connection between research and technological development. At ALA we have the goal to make compact, transportable, easy to use but really accurate LIDAR devices and to make available its experience for measurement campaign.

What we do

Solution for air quality monitoring

Custom solution

ALA develops compact LIDAR systems and offer custom solution for atmospheric remote sensing and air quality monitoring.

Solution for LIDAR control


ALA designs and produce most of the electronics managing its LIDAR systems and offert customizable solutions.

Solution for LIDAR data acquisition and analysis


ALA develops user-friendly software to manage LIDAR systems and acquire and analize their data.

Measurement campaigns

ALA, along with the devolopment lidar-based systems, provides high-end services based on them, like measurement campaigns and data analysis for air quality monitoring and control.


The so called Monte Cimone ACTRIS2 JRA1 campaign, organized by CNR-ISAC, took place in three different sites near the Italian city Bologna. The goal  was the evaluation of the processes affecting the black carbon variability.

ChinA-Italy effort for a compact Raman Lidar

measurement campaign for LIDAR calibration in the framework of actris-2

The campaign took place in the Actris-2 CIAO infrastructure in Potenza, Italy. The main goal was to compare and calibrate ALA system REAL-VIS owned by the China Admnistration Agency (CMA) with the LIDAR system MUSA  operating at CIAO, one of the reference ACTRIS/EARLINET and part of the ACTRIS Lidar Calibration Centre – LiCal).

Multidisciplinary measurement campaigns organized by the Italian municipality of Pomigliano d'Arco-Naples

The measurement campaign (a collaboration with ALA, the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and CeSMA) took place in three different sites in the city of Pomigliano d’Arco, near Naples. The goal was investigating how urban activities affect the PM concentration. 

SIMAC Project

Investigation organized by Campania Region, in ITAly

The measurement campaign had the goal to investigate and characterize particulate matter emissions produced by landfill sites. A collaboration with the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and CeSMA.
