The 22nd conference on coherent laser radar technology and applications is the latest in a series beginning in 1980 which provides a forum for exchange of information on recent events current status, and future directions of coherent laser radar, coherent optical technology, and advanced applications. (Previous CLRC)

The conference serves as a biannual forum for the exchange of current and future developments within the field of coherent laser radar for imaging and remote sensing, including wind lidar using both coherent and direct detection techniques. The conference will include both invited and contributed papers on all aspects of coherent laser radar, coherent optical technology, and advanced applications such as FMCW lidar for autonomous vehicles. The meeting will highlight recent advancements including component technology such as integrated photonic devices for coherent lidar, instrumentation, systems (surface, airborne, and space-based), measurements and signal processing techniques, novel sensing techniques, and emerging requirements for coherent laser radar applications.
