Paper Abstract

Performance projections based on the analytical model of a scannerless laser radar system (presented in a companion paper) are compared to laboratory simulations and to field data measurements. Data and characteristics of the system, including camera response, image spatial resolution, and contributions to the signal-to-noise ratio are presented. A discussion of range resolution for this system also is presented, and finally, the performance characteristics of the prototype benchtop system are summarized.
