Coherent Fiber LADAR

Coherent-Doppler-LADAR1

SA Photonics has developed a complete, end-to-end Coherent Doppler LADAR system. The coherent receiver utilizes an offset homodyne optical receiver which maximizes receiver sensitivity, and very large link distances can be supported. The receiver supports Range Time Intensity (RTI) and Range Resolved Doppler Imaging (RRDI) results.

System Features:

  • Precision high speed fast-steering mirror to enable pointing and tracking of high speed moving targets
  • Pulse-burst waveforms to enable simultaneous range resolved and velocity resolved measurements
  • Modulated high power fiber amplifier technology to ensure maximum on-target optical power
