Paper Abstract

A new technique for realistic synthesis of ladar imagery has been developed for the Irma scene generation code, version 4.0. A wide range of phenomenological effects as well as internal sensor effects can be modeled in detail. Both solid state and CO2 time-of-flight measurement pulsed laser radars are supported for the monostatic case. Since the active range gate signal is computed, effects of multiple objects within the beam can be studied. User-definable processing operations allow evaluation of signal processing algorithms for design studies.
