Accurate and rapid observation of sea surface wind is important for the research of ocean dynamic prediction model, offshore wind resource assessment, air-sea interaction and flux. A compact floating coherent Doppler lidar system named WindMast 350-M was developed by Ocean University of China (OUC) and Leice Transient Technology Co. LTD (LEICE) for the observations of sea surface wind profiles. As an observation device installed on buoy platforms, the first vehicular motion experiment was conducted at Laoshan campus of Ocean University of China(120.49°E , 36.16°N) on 06 and 12 March, 2019. During the first experiment, the wind profiles measured by the WindMast 350-M were compared with the results from a well calibrated Ground-based Coherent Doppler lidar WindMast WP350. In this contribution, the systematic design and the specifications of 350-M are presented in detail. The preliminary results of the vehicular motion experiment are discussed as well.
