In this work, we investigated the concept of a bore sight FLEET geometry, a single-ended configuration where filament imaging is performed along the axis of the excitation laser. Multiple methods to achieve bore sight FLEET are discussed. The bore sight approach was employed to characterize the intensity dependence of FLEET on density and lifetime. Additionally, we demonstrated velocimetry using the bore sight FLEET technique. Finally, we proposed a novel flyable optical air-data collection system based on the application of this technique.
