Paper Abstract

Nowadays the technology of laser positioning based on four-quadrant detector has the wide scope of the study and application areas. The main principle of laser positioning is that by capturing the projection of the laser spot on the photosensitive surface of the detector, and then calculating the output signal from the detector to obtain the coordinates of the spot on the photosensitive surface of the detector, the coordinate information of the laser spot in the space with respect to detector system which reflects the spatial position of the target object is calculated effectively. Given the extensive application of FPGA technology and the pseudo-random sequence has the similar correlation of white noise, the measurement process of the interference, noise has little effect on the correlation peak. In order to improve anti-jamming capability of the guided missile in tracking process, when the laser pulse emission, the laser pulse period is pseudo-random encoded which maintains in the range of 40ms-65ms so that people of interfering can’t find the exact real laser pulse. Also, because the receiver knows the way to solve the pseudo-random code, when the receiver receives two consecutive laser pulses, the laser pulse period can be decoded successfully. In the FPGA hardware implementation process, around each laser pulse arrival time, the receiver can open a wave door to get location information contained the true signal. Taking into account the first two consecutive pulses received have been disturbed, so after receiving the first laser pulse, it receives all the laser pulse in the next 40ms-65ms to obtain the corresponding pseudo-random code.
