Paper Abstract

In order to satisfy the application requirements of spaceborne three dimensional imaging lidar , a prototype of nonscanning multi-channel lidar based on receiver field of view segmentation was designed and developed. High repetition frequency micro-pulse lasers, optics fiber array and Geiger-mode APD, combination with time-correlated single photon counting technology, were adopted to achieve multi-channel detection. Ranging experiments were carried out outdoors. In low echo photon condition, target photon counting showed time correlated and noise photon counting were random. Detection probability and range precision versus threshold were described and range precision increased from 0.44 to 0.11 when threshold increased from 4 to 8.
