Paper Abstract

The design of imaging waveforms for a heterodyne detection range-Doppler laser radar is dependent upon the target dynamics as well as the laser radar transmitter and receiver component technology constraints. This paper deals with the receiver and signal processing issues associated with three specific coherent waveform types. The waveform types are simple unmodulated pulse trains, linear frequency modulated (LFM) chirp pulse trains and bi-phase shift keyed (BPSK) pulse trains. The pulse trains of each type are parametric and can be used to produce a variety of range-Doppler imaging, range only, or Doppler only measurement waveforms.
