Abstract
A laser transmitter/receiver system using a retroreflector in space (RIS) to experiment with earth-satellite-earth laser long-path absorption measurements of atmospheric trace species is described. The system employs two single-longitudinal-mode pulsed CO2 lasers to measure the atmospheric spectrum and a second-harmonic Nd:YAG laser for active satellite tracking using the image of the RIS reflection. Details of the laser system and the initial experiment are reported.
