Paper Abstract

In this paper, an optical system is described that is an optical head of a coherent imaging CO2 laser radar. Discrimination and field of regard limit decided by the optical head itself are discussed. In the experimental laser radar only one continuous wave, single mode CO2 laser is used, and the signals from buildings of 7 km away are obtained with acceptable SNR while the laser output is about 5 w. Furthermore, the comparison between two optical systems based on individually linear frequency modulation (or chirp) pulse compression and frequency modulated continuous wave technique is also introduced in this paper.
