Abstract

Laser have been a tool of the space programs of the world for accomplishing a variety of engineering and scientific objectives. Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) and NEAR spacecraft, which carries a laser ranger (NLR) represent a new class of active remote sensing instruments for conducting science in the solar system. These instruments determine the formation, dynamics and evolution of the planets, and even the solar system itself.
