Paper Abstract

Characteristics of laser radar (LADAR) 3D image depend on ladar transceivers, propagation effects, target/beam interactions, and data processing or detection algorithms. Process of target/beam interaction is determined by target surface optical scattering properties, which can be characterized by bidirectional reflectivity distribution function (BRDF). Based on alternative monostatic BRDF models, we report here a backscattering model of optical radiation for ladar 3D range image. Atmospheric turbulence effects are not treated.
