Paper Abstract

During the last three years Sandia Laboratory has been developing a mobile laser (lidar) system for use in detecting artificial clouds composed of ablative materials from re-entry vehicles. This talk presents a discussion of the lidar system developed at Sandia Laboratory and the data obtained from evaluation studies in which the laser energy was reflected from stationary, slow velocity, and low-and high-density targets. These targets were atmospheric clouds, terrain, and retroreflectors. A preliminary comparison of the measure of long range atmospheric transmission to the clear Standard Atmospheric attenuation is also provided.
