Abstract

Measurements of signal amplitude distributions with a FM-cw CO2 laser radar have various targets in both imaging and staring modes. Data show good agreement with theoretical distributions. From the measurements conclusions are drawn about the atmospheric- as well as target-induced effects. Beam wandering effects are shown to be of importance in the staring mode.
