Eliasson’s product portfolio are focused on their core product – Ceilometers or “Cloud height sensor” for civil and military use, which uses a laser based LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) technique to determine the height of a cloud base. The Ceilometer determine cloud base heights, penetration depths, mixing layer height and vertical visibilities.
Within their operating range they reliably detect multiple cloud layers and cirrus clouds. Such a sensor is typically used in the following areas: Airports, Oil platforms, Ships, Highways, Automatic Weather Stations, Heliports etc. Eliasson are offering two different laser based ceilometers depending on detection height or required range (up to 12000 m / 40 000 ft).
