Feasibility studies have been carried out for a ground-based LIDAR experiment to measure spatially resolved rocket plume temperature profiles, based on a specific detection scheme proposed by workers at the University of South Florida. This experiment involves the Differential Absorption LIDAR (DIAL) measurement of temperature, using observations of the first vibrational overtone band of HC1. Results from plume flow field codes and spectral simulations have been used to test the feasibility of the above DIAL experiment, and additional preliminary ground based tests are proposed here, which would logically lead up to the more complex DIAL experiment.
