Laser Imaging Systems in Support of the Cassini Launch


R. E. Scott


This paper is a review of the laser safety planning for the use of three laser imaging systems in support of the 15 October 1997 Cassini Launch from the Eastern Test Range, which is the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Station (CCAS). The need for laser imaging systems is discussed, along with the health physics measures required for the safe use of these atmospheric lasers.
