Abstract
In this paper we report the results of the analysis and experimental modeling of the target-in-the-loop (TIL) approach that is used to form a localized beacon for a laser beam propagating through turbulent atmosphere. The analogy between the TIL system and the laser cavity has been used here to simulate the process shaping the laser beacon on a remote image-resolved target with rough surface. The TIL breadboard was integrated and used for laboratory modeling of the proposed approach. This breadboard allowed to simulate the TIL arrangement with a rough-surface target and laser beam propagation through the turbulent atmospheric layer. Here we present the initial results of the performed studies.
