LASER RADAR RANGE EQUATION CONSIDERATIONS

Pagination or Media Count:
Starting with basic physical and beam-target-geometry concepts, a generalized laser radar range equation is derived which holds for a target at any range in the far field. For completeness, the reflective properties of a target, its cross section, and the one-way atmospheric transmission loss are examined. The relationships derived in this report are general in that they are valid at any e.g., microwave wavelengths.
