Abstract

A coherent imaging CO2 laser radar has been built and field tested. It collects reflectance and range images from amplitude and phase measurements. Statistical analysis indicates Rayleigh distribution in the reflectance data from a military truck, the dirt ground, and an asphalt road. The reflectivities of these objects are determined to be <2.5%, obtained by comparison with laboratory reflectometer measurements.
