Abstract
In synthetic aperture imaging ladar (SAIL), spatially and temporally varied speckles are resulted from the linear wavelength chirped laser signal. The random phase and amplitude of space-time speckle is imported to heterodyne beat signal by antenna aperture integration. The numerical evolution for such an effect is presented. Our research indicates the random phase and amplitude is closely related to the ratio of antenna aperture and speckle scale. According to computer simulation results, the scale design of optical antenna aperture to reduce the image degradation is proposed.
