Paper Abstract

A long-life Nd:YAG laser transmitter module for spaceborne elastic back-scattering LIDAR is under construction supported by European Space Agency contract. This paper presents preliminary tests and results of a space qualifiable laser with 5 watt average power at 532 nm and expected lifetime of 109 shots.
