Our approach concerning the development of hard target return CO2 DIAL transmitter/receiver systems is two phased: (1) through analysis and experiment, develop a fundamental understanding of the transmitter/receiver physics specific to DIAL systems and (2) apply these fundamentals in the development of optimal performance DIAL transmitter/receiver systems. We present our progress and results towards these objectives with the following topics addressed: a general overview of the DIAL transmitter/receiver system characterization effort with a focus on transceiver noise processes. The effects of correlated noise on DIAL performance, especially those effecting statistical convergence over long sample structures, is introduced. And, preliminary measurements of a low-noise, `white' receiver prototype are presented.
