This paper describes pioneering development of solid-state laser transmitter technology at NASA Langley Research Center. It also discusses the design and current development status of the coherent lidar transceiver being developed by Coherent Technologies Inc for the NASA's SPARCLE (SPAce Readiness Coherent Lidar Experiment) wind lidar mission. SPARCLE is primarily a technology demonstration mission, which is consistent with its selection as NASA's New Millennium Program (NMP) second Earth… CONTINUE READING
