Research Institution
The overall goal of this proposed program is to develop a novel system for the detection of targets immersed in water. The program is based on the synergism of two established technologies, LIDAR and conventional microwave RADAR. The specific objectives of the Phase I investigations are: (l) to develop, in con- sultation with sponsor, a set of detailed specifications for the overall program -. to assure optimal coordination with sponsor\'s needs; (2) to design a microwave modulated optical transmitter; (3) to perform analytic and computer simulation studies of the propagation of various pulse shapes through a water model that includes temporal and spatial pulse stretching effects, and to verify the model using available data; (4)to investigate advanced detection and signal processing techniques; (5) to develop preiiminary design of proof of concept experimentation. The objectives of the Phase II studies will be the design and implementation of a proof of concept experiment and a comprehensive design of the hybrid optical- microwave radar.
