This paper shows how these signal probability density functions in power and in voltage propagate down the signal processing electronics chain using data from the Army Missile Optical Range (AMOR) facility. The AMOR targets considered here are 'analytical targets' consisting of rotating diffuse disks and rotating diffuse spheres illuminated by a CO2 laser. It is hoped that the analyses presented will clarify and clearly illustrate the origins of these various signal probability density functions with the added benefit that the signal processing calculations are performed on data from a coherent laser radar system.
