Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the trends in laser radar development. Applications include reconnaissance and targeting from airborne and spaceborne platforms. A multifunction airborne sensor system, which includes a laser radar function with many modes, is defined. A multidiscriminant space borne laser radar is also described and its feasibility is assessed. A number proposed and existing Air Force programs to develop laser radar technology are described.
