Paper Abstract

Ranges operation of previously investigated LADAR Cooperative target acquisition and tracking systems have been enhanced from 10 to 30 km using dual mode LADAR/RADAR systems. All weather ranges above 400 km require L band RADAR which employ very high power Tx and a bulky antenna.

The use of active transponders on cooperative targets is investigated. Equations for range computations of active transponders in LADAR/RADAR systems are developed and several results are discussed.
