Paper Abstract

This paper analyzes the detection process for targets in laser speckle noise using results from classical detection and estimation theory. The analysis is applied to the real problem of an airborne laser radar system looking down at targets on the ground. An optimum strategy for adaptive signal processing is described and graphical results are presented to facilitate laser radar system design.
