Abstract
Ranging has been demonstrated with an experimental laser rangefinder employing a hybrid TEA-CO2 laser transmitter and a heterodyne-detection receiver. A description of the system, including its operating principles and performance characteristics, is presented. Ranging results are given to 5 km on targets with previously measured characteristics and to 32 km on natural targets. The application of TEA-CO2 laser transmitters in optical radar systems capable of detecting and tracking high speed targets is briefly discussed.
