Abstract
NASA has plans to monitor the health of Planet Earth using remote sensing techniques from polar orbiting satellites. By using active remote sensors, such as lasers, global, height- resolved, data can be obtained on essential earth variables. Performance specifications and first order designs for current and proposed remote sensing instruments have been developed. Optical damage impacts the performance of these sensors in the attainment of efficiency and reliability.
