Paper Abstract

We describe the development of a number of eyesafe Er:YAG laser systems. Based on the Co Planar Folded Zig Zag geometry, these lasers were primarily developed for hard target ranging at distances greater than 20 km. We also present results where these lasers have been used to explore the profiles of cloud structures over Adelaide, South Australia.
