We demonstrate the feasibility of multi-target real-time ranging with a chaotic laser radar. The used chaotic laser is emitted by a semiconductor laser with optical feedback. We design a proof-of-concept experiment based on the correlation detection and realize the range measurements of two targets simultaneously. The range resolution of 9 cm between two targets is achieved, which is limited by the bandwidth of the used real-time oscilloscope. A preliminary experiment of chaotic laser coherence is carried out to verify the high resolution of the chaotic lidar.
