I am looking for a contact, maybe FAA that might have interest in an
alternative (non-lidar) wake vortex sensing technology.  My boss is
going to pull the plug on the effort unless I can find some interest
from someone in govt. (FAA, NASA, or such).

I have looked at the work done by the Sensors group at Langley.
However, since the charter of that group is lidar, I am afraid they
would be pretty negative about any non-lidar approach.  Can anyone
suggest someone in FAA interested in wake vortex sensing?
