Abstract
A rangegated ladar imaging system based on a pulsed TEA-CO2 laser is described and low resolution (24-by-32 element) ladar images of targets at ranges between 45 m and 1.74 km are obtained. Comparison with visible-light photographs digitized using the same spatial resolution is made and degradation of the ladar images due to target specularity and amplitude scintillation is discussed. Techniques for processing and analysing the ladar images are described.
