Abstract : The capabilities of the AFGL fixed and mobile (GLEAM and GLINT) high altitude lidar systems have been enhanced to include sodium fluorescence measurement capability and daytime Rayleigh backscatter measurement capability. A detector system has been designed and fabricated for the 24 inch telescope in the mobile system which includes a Fabry-Perot etalon to allow daytime measurements. Operational support has been provided during field programs to Wallops Island, VA and to the Poker Flat Rocket Research Range, AK, and during experiments at the fixed location. Keywords: Fluorscence lidar, Rayleigh lidar.
