Abstract:

The goal of this project is to improve the performance of lidar systems for multi-mission use. Specifically, we will study the application of radar and acoustic modulation, detection, and signal processing techniques to lidar systems. A modulated pulse lidar system will be developed and experimental demonstration results will be compared to Monte Carlo modeling predictions. This technique is also applicable to underwater, atmospheric and biological tissue imaging and detection systems.
