28 February 2005 Fibre laser Doppler vibrometry system for target recognition
Author Affiliations +
Vibrations from a target provide a difficult to mask target signature. Vibrometry shows potential for long-range target identification whilst a fibre implementation may lead to a smaller, more compact system when compared with an equivalent solid-state source solution. A prototype fibre LDV system and electronic demodulation scheme using low-cost telecommunications components is described and tested. The aim of the system is to remove the velocity component of a target signature for target identification purposes. Signal processing methods and signature measurements are described which demonstrate the utility of the system for target recognition.
