Experimental investigation of the efficiency of laserelectronic systems for aircraft surface remote sounding

Abstract

Experimental studies to define the reflection characteristics of aircraft surfaces have been carried out. The behavior of the reflectance under pulse periodic action with different values of intensity has been analysed. A test-bed for laser detection and ranging of objects is used to analyse the influence of sounding laser radiation parameters on the probability of detection and recognition. Relationships between the image contrast range and the impulse angle of incidence, wavelength and relative pulse duration have been obtained. Experimental estimation of the influence of the radiation wavelength on the probability of detecting objects in case of using lasers has been carried out.
