Paper Abstract

We present a summary of a theory for the ensemble average of the laser radar cross section of a target immersed in an atmosphere characterized by a random index of refraction. The theory is applied to the calculation of the effective cross section of a specular disk oriented normally to the incident field. Numerical results are presented for the effects of range and outer scale size on the effective laser radar cross section of the disk.
