Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A COHERENT CO2 LASER RADAR SYSTEM (I.E. HETERODYNE DETECTION IS EMPLOYED) THAT WILL PERMIT THE DETECTION OF INDIVIDUAL COMBATANTS (GUERRILLA PERSONNEL), VEHICLES, AND LOW FLYIG AIRCRAFT, IN A CLUTTERED ENVIRONMENT, DAY OR NIGHT AND IN FOUL WEATHER. THE SYSTEM CAN BE COMPACT, RUGGED AND WILL CONSUME LITTLE POWER. THE SMALL RUGGED FEATURES OF THE SYSTEM RESULT FROM THE USE OF AN AIR-COOLED, COMPACT CO2 LASER. IN ADDITION, THE USE OF THE CW-FM WAVEFORM THAT FREQUENTLY IS EMPLOYED IN CLASSICAL RADIO FREQUENCY RADAR SYSTEMS (ALSO THE SIGNAL PROCESSING TECHNIQUE EMPLOYED BY SOME SPECIES OF BATS), WILL BE SHOWN TO RESULT IN DESIRABLE CLUTTER REJECTION PERFORMANCE AND TO PROVIDE SIMULTANEOUS RANGE AND VELOCITY INFORMATION ABOUT THE TARGET.
