Paper Abstract

Lidar in space have been featuring as a high sensitive active sensor for global observations of aerosol, cloud, water vapor, wind vector etc. Numerous efforts have been carried out toward realization of those by many researchers. NASDA also started a space lidar program from 1990. A present status of this program is a Phase A. The Phase A was highly directed to resolve system parameters of bookstore lidars, DIAL for measurements of global aerosol density, cloud height, vertical and horizontal distribution of water vapor concentration etc. and to develop an airborne lidar system, including high power diode-pumped Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF lasers, to obtain data for simulation of space lidar. This paper will describe the airborne lidar system with diode-pumped Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF lasers under development.
