Abstract
High-resolution infrared laser radars are shown to be effective sensors for use in remote minefield detection (RMD). The theoretical aspects and practical limitations of imaging laser radars are discussed and the conceptual designs of two airborne carbon-dioxide laser radars are presented. A design which uses direct detection and a linear-array detector is shown to be superior to one using heterodyne detection and a single-element detector. Countermeasures to active infrared RMD systems are discussed and suggestions made for further study.
