Ten-micron heterodyne laser radar offers a new type of remote sensor that can add significantly to our characterization and understanding of the atmosphere. For example, accurate range-resolved measurements of air velocity via the Doppler of aerosol backscatter -- to distances of tens of kilometers -- will yield a better understanding of wind shear. This report is the assembly volume of a two-volume report intended to aid the government in assembling and operating the long pulse laser radar built and delivered on this contract. The equipment is intended for assembly in a trailer to be supplied by the government. It incorporates a high pulse repetition frequency, high power electron beam injection CO2 laser developed earlier by the General Electric Co. and a hemispherical scanner with a laser beam of less than 12000 degrees beamwidth.
