Paper Abstract

WINDII is an imaging, field widened Michelson interferometer built by Canada and France for ffight on NASA's Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, which was launched September 12, 1991. Its primary purpose is to measure winds in the 80—300 km region of the atmosphere by observing airglow emissions. It has performed well to date. The design of the instrument is outlined in this paper.
