This report summarizes the technical effort accomplished in FY82 on a program to make range-resolved measurements of chemical agents or pollutants distributed within the atmosphere. The rationale for using compact, coherent C02 laser radar techniques rather than TEA laser techniques is discussed. Range- resolved measurements of aerosol backscatter at ranges up to 1.5km are reported. Techniques for making C02 lasers rapidly tunable among several wavelengths are also described.
