Paper Abstract

A coherent pulse-burst 1.06 (mu) ladar transmitter is described. The output consists of a 1.6 J, 800 microsecond(s) burst of 550 ps pulses occurring at a 50 MHz repetition rate. The burst repetition rate is 10 Hz. The optical frequency stability before coherent processing at the receiver is +/- 100 kHz. The transmitter consists of a CW-pumped mode-locked Nd:YAG oscillator followed by a pulsed double-pass amplifier, and is used as part of a calibrated range-Doppler imaging target signature measurement system
