Abstract
In ocean inspection, laser system has the advantages of high precision, high efficiency and being enacted on the temperature or salinity of seawater. It has been developed greatly in recent years. But it is not yet a mature inspection technique because of the complicacy of oceanic channel and water-scattering. There are many problems to be resolved. In this paper, the work principle and of general developing situation of ocean lidar techniques are introduced first. The author points out that the intense scattering and absorbing acting on light by water is the bottleneck to limit the development of ocean lidar. The Monet Carlo method is adopted finally to be a basal way of study in this paper after discussing several method of studying the light transmitting in seawater. Based on the theory of photon transmitted in the seawater and the particularity of underwater target detecting, we have studied the characters of laser scattering on underwater target surface and spatial and temporal characters of forward scattering. Starting from the particularity of underwater target detecting, a new model to describe the characters of laser scattering is presented. Based on this model, we developed the fast arithmetic, which enhanced the computation speed greatly and the precision was also assured. It made detecting real-time realizable. Basing on the Monte Carlo simulation and starting from the theory of photon transmitted in the seawater, we studied how the parameters of water quality and other systemic parameters affect the light forward scattering through seawater at spatial and temporal region and provided the theoretical sustentation of enhancing the SNR and operational distance.
