In this paper the modification of the algorithm of profile reconstruction of wind components transverse to the optical axis from spatiotemporal statistics of laser beam intensity in a receiving telescope, is proposed. It is shown, that the presence of the collecting lens in the receiving tract improves the accuracy of profile reconstruction at the sensing path end. The possibility of wind profiling with the algorithm proposed is demonstrated in the end-to-end computer experiments.
