A 1 064-nm pulsed coherent Doppler lidar (CDL) prototype is developed to measure short range wind speed in the lower altitude troposphere layer. The CDL system adopts an injection{seeded Nd:YAG laser with the pulse duration of 80 ns, single pulse energy of 0.5 mJ, and pulse repetition rate of 200 Hz. Speed calibration experiments are implemented to obtain a speed accuracy of 0.3 m/s using a hard target. Data analysis results show that the CDL system can obtain a line-of-sight wind velocity at a range of 30 to 500 m with the range resolution of 40 m and 38 pulses accumulation.
