Abstract

This paper discusses a lidar model of the formation of a sodium laser star for the measurement and adaptive correction of atmospheric phase distortions in a ground-based optical system when space objects are being observed and angularly tracked. The energy characteristics of the laser star are studied when it occupies various angular positions in the visibility zone of a ground-based optical system. Requirements are formulated on the energy characteristics of a laser for forming a laser star in order to implement adaptive phase-matched correction of atmospheric phase distortions when low-orbit space objects are being observed.
