Paper Abstract

This report will describe the progress towards modeling the radiance of a mesospheric atomic sodium guidestar pumped with a continuous-wave, narrow-linewidth source. We will model the cases of pumping only the D2a line and pumping both the D2a and D2b lines simultaneously. The simulation is named the sodium guidestar simulation or SGS.
