Abstract : This report provides a summary of the progress in developing and testing a space flight prototype Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne (DASH) interferometer, for the purposes of measuring winds in the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere/Ionosphere (MLTI). The motivation behind developing a prototype instrument during this SBIR Phase II is to raise the technical readiness level (TRL).
