Paper Abstract

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has been engaging in Earth and planetary science remote sensing instruments development for many years. The latest instrument was launched in 2008 to the moon providing the most detailed topographic map of the lunar surface to-date. NASA GSFC is preparing for several future missions, which for the first time will perform active spectroscopic measurements from space. In this paper we will review the past, present and future of space-qualified lasers for remote sensing applications at GSFC.
