-space Technology Experiment (LITE) was a concept demonstration experiment that flew on the Space Transportation System (STS)-64 mission in September 1994 ( Winker et al. 1996 ). LITE was the first lidar to observe the atmosphere from orbit and demonstrated the potential of satellite lidar for observing cloud and aerosol. LITE had high sensitivity because of its low orbit and high laser pulse energies, but the receiver had limited dynamic range. Cloud signals were saturated at the high detector gains used to
