Chapter 1 introduces the reader to the laser radar
theory, which includes the range equation, range equation dependence on the target area, noise power considerations, receiver detection techniques, background noise, receiver noise and signal terms.
To consolidate space, the newly developed laser radar
features a simpler laser beam generation mechanism than previous versions.
The network combines the information received by the helicopter's sensors and the laser radar
with the information generated by the ground vehicle.
(or LADAR) technology has benefited greatly from this increased interest.
Infrared, optical and ultraviolet regions of the frequency spectrum have been considered as possible choices for laser radar
Under the acronym CLARA (Compact [CO.sub.2] Laser Radar
System), Britain and France are to collaborate on the development of a stealthy laser radar
suitable for both fixed-wing and helicopter applications.
This is the first of such technologies to be trialled has been Nikon Metrology's Laser Radar
- a long stand-off laser measurement system, capable of accuracies of better than a hundredth of a millimetre, over distances of several meters.
Responds to vehicles and pedestrians via camera and laser radar
. The Adaptive Cruise Control System [ACC] maintains a selected distance between your vehicle and the car ahead via radar for greater safety and peace of mind.
