Sigma Space Corporation in China: a new opportunity for air quality improvement
On May 2010, Sigma Space Corporation participated in the International Conference held in China, by the Air & Waste Management Association, on Leapfrogging Opportunities for Air Quality Improvement.
As a vendor exhibitor, Sigma Space released the MiniMPL, a new Micro Pulse Lidar optimized for the near range of the atmosphere (up to 10 km). A product well suited for Atmospheric Boundary Layer measurements, the MiniMPL has been presented as the ideal instrument for air quality monitoring.
Attendees have largely appreciated it as one of the best examples of the latest technology in this field. Yunhui Zheng (in the picture), the Director of Optical Engineering who leads MiniMPL project in Sigma and participated to the exhibition, has collected a very good feedback in particular from the atmospheric researchers. â€œI still remember with satisfaction the reaction of some of them who lifted it, telling me with a face of surprise It is much more lighter than I could guess. Our product, in fact, is actually the smallest Lidar on the market. But I bet that our Lidar can be even lighter!â€ declared Yunhui, anticipating some of the upcoming improvement on the instrument.
