Paper Abstract

The capability of lidar placed onboard an orbital platform to measure the atmospheric density profiles at altitudes from the Earth surface 20–100 km is investigated. The International Space Station whose Russian Segment will be equipped with one more measuring module is planned to be used as such an orbital platform. The distinguishing feature of the lidar caused by the problem being solved is the application of a laser with two working wavelengths from the UV range.
