Abstract
This paper presents a model used to predict the performances of a burst illumination imaging lidar propagating through the atmosphere. The laser beam propagates near the ground on a long distance and undergoes strong perturbations due to atmospheric turbulence. This model takes into account both propagating paths: forward propagation as the wavefront progresses towards the observed object and backward propagation as the light is reflected back to the receiver.
