Paper Abstract

A pulsed laser transmitter and a range gated imaging receiver will be used to obtain a substantial increase in the operating range of underwater television systems. As discussed in this paper systems possessing this configuration achieve this enhancement of performance by minimizing the ratio of received backscatter to signal energy. Ultimate use of this system is to perform underwater detection and classification. Based on theoretical analyses the overall system noise figure (NF) and modulation transfer function (MTF) are presented. These analyses, together with detailed system parameters, are used to evaluate the anticipated range-resolution performance capabilities of the system. Functional and physical descriptions of the system are included.
