Research Institution
Advanced modulation formats and detection approaches, common in optical communications, have the potential of improving the performance of coherent LADAR systems. In order to achieve unambiguous range and velocity discrimination a sophisticated modulation format is required. We want to adapt telecommunication modualtion formats and investigate their advantages in LADAR applications. By integrating such optical fiber based technology in LADAR systems we anticipate improvements in: Optical beam quality,Beam pointing stability, signal to noise ratio, range and velocity ambiguity, packaging and power conversion efficiency.
