Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the space-based measurement of atmospheric winds from the point of view of the requirements of the optical system of a coherent CO2 lidar. A brief description of the measurement technique is given and a discussion of previous study results provided. The telescope requirements for a space station based lidar are arrived at through discussions of the desired system sensitivity and the need for lag angle compensation.
