Paper Abstract

This paper describes a 1.55 micrometer coherent fiber laser radar designed and developed at ONERA in France. This eye-safe Doppler system uses a 0.5 W codoped Erbium/Ytterbium fiber laser and a compact fiber optical architecture. The system has been tested at distances up to 1 km. Experimental results are presented and performances compared to the theoretical model taking into account atmospheric propagation.
