Atmospheric Turbulence Monitoring

Detailed understanding of atmospheric turbulence is critical for free-space optical communications, quantum key distribution (QKD), and optical astronomy.


Twinkle is the world's first 24/7 atmospheric turbulence monitor. Fully autonomous and rapidly deployable.

Measure from your site:

  • Seeing

  • Coherence length, time and angle

  • Rytov variance

  • Vertical turbulence profile

An example where Twinkle is being used is the European Space Agency ALASCA project for the Optical Feeder Link.
