A theoretical analysis is made of the kinetics of inverted population of SO2 levels in a mixture containing vibrationally excited oxygen O2(X, v), formed as a result of relaxation of the [MATH] electronic energy. It is shown that the gain for the SO2 transitions at the 12 and 16 µm wavelengths is sufficient to achieve lasing.
