Paper Abstract

The problem of imaging distant objects through atmospherically-induced aberrations has attracted considerable attention is recent years. Such imaging often requires active laser illumination for two reasons: the received signal must be enhanced, and specific spatial and temporal coherence properties are required to obtain an image. Many different active illumination techniques are available: these include Doppler, range, and angle-angle imaging, as well as techniques from stellar speckle interferometry and holography. The various techniques are compared in terms of illuminator power and waveform requirements.
