Abstract
The NASA Space Station Program includes development of a polar orbiting platform as part of the Earth observing system (Eos) Program. A lidar facility is in-turn being developed for the Eos polar platforms to make atmospheric science measurements utilizing techniques of laser atmospheric backscatter (optical radar), Differential Absorption Lidar (DIAL) and altimetry. The science for this facility has been developed by the Lidar Atmospheric Sounder and Altimetry (LASA) panel for the Earth observing system and will be addressed in an Announcement of Opportunity which will be released early in 1988 to solicit science proposals and experiment proposals for the Eos missions.
