Abstract:

In this paper we have presented recent experimental data concerning the performance of a coherent laser radar CLR receiver array system as measured by its Mean Coherent Array Gain Factor MCAGF and probability of fade statistics. Based on the experimental data, it can be concluded that atmospheric turbulence effects can be significantly mitigated by the use of such coherent receiver systems as compared with more conventional single-aperture systems.
