Paper Abstract

Physical factors affecting the signal to nose ratio in the optical location systems are considered under the conditions of turbulence intermittence. The experimental data on the effects of random wandering, turbulent broadening, changes of the coherence radius of the local intensity fluctuations are obtained for the narrow laser beams. Theoretical model accounting for the result of experiments by change of the ratio between the beam radius nd inner scale of the turbulence has been constructed. It enables to carry out optimization of the optical location paths.
