Paper Abstract

We describe a lidar research and development program having several applications to the transmission of optical information and high power laser radiation through the atmosphere. Lidar capabilities for remote sensing of the atmosphere are reviewed. New lidar facilities and their initial operations are described, including a transportable lidar system being constructed for tropospheric and middle atmosphere measurements of constituents that can influence long range optical detection and laser transmission.
