Paper Abstract

We describe recent advancements in laser light scattering hardware including intelligent single card correlators, active quench/active reset avalanche photodiodes, laser diodes, and fiber optics which were used by or developed for a NASA Advanced Technology Development program. We then preview a space shuttle experiment which will employ aspects of these hardware developments.
