Paper Abstract

According to the characteristics of chaotic laser, which has ability of novel anti-jamming, high bandwidth and detecting distance of the movement target to the millimeter precision, a modeling method of using airborne chaotic laser system to detect distance of high remote targets is proposed for the first time. The characteristics of chaotic laser and principle of interferometry distance were analyzed and the model of airborne chaotic laser ranging is established. Meanwhile, the influence of detection accuracy, which inducted by the main peak width of chaotic laser and the jamming signal is analyzed. According to the results of simulation analysis, we can get conclusions that the main factors of affecting the distance measurement are transmitted power, receiving sensitivity, and various losses of transmission medium. Autocorrelation characteristic of chaotic signal can also affect the dynamic range of the whole system. The main peak width of chaotic laser is the main factor of influencing the accuracy of measurement. However, the jamming signal affect distance measuring range and accuracy of measurement little. Finally, the model’s effectiveness is proved by comparing the experience data and simulation data.
