Paper Abstract

Elements of spectroscopic continuous-wave, frequency-modulated ladar (CW-FM-ladar) concept based on principles of both CW-FM-range-finding and modulation spectroscopy, and also on modern techniques of optical signal transmission, reception and processing are presented. Features of heterodyning methods for ladar echo-signal reception are considered. The comparison of CW-FM-ladar with CW-FM-range-finder and incoherent pulse lidar is carried out. Estimations of the achievable signal-to-noise ratio, the operation range and the range resolution are performed using frequency-dependent parameters of the transmitting and receiving subsystems. Preliminary experimental results on the range-finding subsystem characteristics of the CW-FM-laser diode (LD)-ladar are discussed.
