Paper Abstract

Some of the major NASA programs using laser remote sensing techniques are summarized, with emphasis on the development of the Lidar In-space Technology Experiment and the Lidar Atmospheric Sensing Experiment. Insight is provided into the technology being developed for future experiments, primarily wavelength extension into the middle IR range of the spectrum, 3 to 5 microns, and for wind sensing and DIAL measurements. New metrology technology which will lead to improvement measurements for both earth sciences and space physics is discussed. Some of the developments in systems and technology for applications in aviation safety, microburst detection, clear air turbulence, and wave vortex detection are highlighted.
