Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the design and development of a 2J, 10Hz coherent Doppler wind lidar transmitter for global wind sensing from the International Space Station. This work is being performed in support of a proposal to operate such a lidar from the Japanese Experimental Module. The conceptual lidar transmitter design is complete and risk reduction measurements are currently underway to demonstrate the 2J, 10Hz operation using a 2 micron laser transmitter with a MOPA (master oscillator – power amplifier) configuration. The paper discusses the lidar performance requirements for global wind sensing from the Space Station, general design characteristics of the two micron lidar transmitter, and the current status of the risk reduction measurements.
