Abstract
A backscattering model of average signal power function for laser radar range imagery obtained by a short pulse laser for a coarse cone is presented in this paper. This model can analyze the laser range profile and range imaging which relate the average power seen by the receiver with laser pulse, target shape, optical scattering properties of surface material, incidence angle and other factors. Simulation of the laser range profile and range imaging of a coarse cone is given. Based on the results of the simulated model and theoretical analysis, the cone can be identified. The model can be used for demonstration of 3D laser radar system and can also be used to generate library of model data sets for automatic target recognition.
