The increasing power capability of diode lasers and methods for combining their outputs to create more powerful sources make them candidates for long range laser radar missions. Parametric analyses of search and ranging requirements indicate this is reasonable in above the horizon and night environments. Their electrical efficiency and modular packaging qualities make them suitable for lightweight sensors.
