Paper Abstract

It has been experimentally shown that a two-color LIDAR is capable of detecting submerged objects to depths of 15 feet at angles of incidence greater than 85 degrees. The basic limitation appears to be extraction of the signal from the surface and volume backscatter sea clutter return in the LIDAR receiver. The experiment is briefly described, the results shown and areas of possible improvement discussed.
