Abstract
Past laboratory experiments established the ability of the modulated pulse lidar system to improve underwater target contrast. Due to the limitations of the laboratory environment in assessing the performance of then we detection scheme, a system was designed and constructed for use in an ocean experiment which was carried out in December, 1995. Results from the field test confirm the capability of modulated pulse lidar to reduce backscatter clutter and enhance underwater target contrast. In addition, the existence of microwave subcarrier interference effect confirmed that the microwave signal integrity was maintained throughout the range of measurements.
