Abstract:

AUTONOMOUS TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION IS DEVELOPING A TECHNIQUE FOR MAKING HIGHLY ACCURATE ANGLE MEASUREMENTS USING A NEW APPROACH TO PROCESSING MONOPULSE HETERODYNE LASER RADAR SIGNALS. THE ADVANTAGE OVER CURRENT MONOPULSE SIGNAL PROCESSING CONCEPTS IS THAT THE EFFECTS OF LASER SPECKLE ARE DECOUPLED FROM THE ANGLE MEASUREMENT. PHASE I CONSISTED OF BOTH ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION WHICH PRODUCED A FOUNDATION OF UNDERSTANDING FOR PHASE II. THE ANGLE ESTIMATION ALGORITHM WHICH IS BEING DEVELOPED, BASED ON MEASUREMENTS TO BE CONDUCTED DURING PHASE II, WILL PROCESS BOTH THE RELATIVE AMPLITUDE AND RELATIVE PHASE OF THE RETURN SIGNAL FOR ADJACENT DETECTOR CHANNELS. THE TECHNOLOGY WHICH IS BEING DEVELOPED MAY BE APPLIED TO APPLICATIONS AS DIVERSE AS STRATEGIC TARGET WEAPONS SYSTEM FIRE CONTROL AND TRACKING THE RANDOM, INVOLUNTARY MOTIONS OF EYES FOR EXAMINATION AND SURGICAL APPLICATIONS.
