Paper Abstract

An account is given of a scaled functional testbed laser for space-qualified coherent-detection lidar applications which employs a CO2 laser. This laser has undergone modification and characterization for inherent performance capabilities as a model of coherent detection. While characterization results show good overall performance that is in agreement with theoretical predictions, frequency-stability and pulse-length limitations severely limit the laser''s use in coherent detection
