Paper Abstract

The problems of obtaining and processing information in pulsed laser rangefinders in order to determine ranging object characteristic feature selection and identification under permanent echo conditions are considered, including the influence of target spatial length, radiation beam nonuniformity, and random rangefinder target guidance error. Automatic target selection algorithms and circuits are also considered. The principle of target signal selection and identification based on reflected pulse data is proposed.
