Paper Abstract

System considerations and the design of infrared coherent lidars utilizing tropospheric backscatter are discussed. Requirements regarding power measurement, Doppler measurement, antenna and laser energy considerations are addressed. A design for an improved CO2 laser source is proposed that meets these requirements and is compact and capable of unattended operation.
