Shack-Hartmann Image Motion Monitor (SHIMM)
The SHIMM is a vertical turbulence monitor capable of operating continuously 24hours a day even in strong turbulence conditions. The SHIMM can measure the atmospheric optical turbulence coherence length, time and angle, the Rytov variance and a low resolution vertical profile.
The SHIMM is built from COTS components and uses an 11″ OTA, providing a cheap and portable solution.
