SMall lidAR for environmenT

LIDAR technology for air monitoring in urban and sub-urban area


SMART is an elastic-Raman LIDAR system specially designed to monitor the atmosphere in a very large elevation range: from 30 meters to 20 kilometers, combining compactness, portability, accuracy, autonomy in remote use and ease of operation.


The system can detect both the co-polarized and cross-polarized signals at 355nm and the Raman echo at 386 nm or the co-polarized and cross-polarized signals at 532 nm (under custom request).


Provided with a manual swiveling system, SMART is the perfect solution to monitor industrial emission, urban pollution and all types of airborne particles and to localize pollutants’ sources.


Real time monitoring of:

  • – Atmospheric pollution
  • – Planetary Boundary Layer evolution
  • – Clouds dynamic

What comparison tests say

SMART has been compared several times with a competing commercial system working at the same wavelength (but not easily transportable), always giving better results in terms of detected signals and signal-to-noise ratio

SMART's power supply unit is quite small and high-weight, and does not hinder the system's transportability unlike many competitor products.
