Abstract
Underwater laser imaging is of great significance in underwater search and marine science, etc. However, traditional underwater laser imaging is often of poor quality with noises and blurs, moreover, the resolution of the image is also low. In order to obtain clear underwater images with high resolution and quality, here, we have designed a range gated imaging underwater imaging system and realized an image restoration approach. In this paper, based on the introduction to the imaging system and image restoration algorithm, the experiment is established by setting the imaging system under water in the lake to capture the underwater targets. With the proposed underwater image restoration approach, images of high quality could be retrieved which proves that the method is able to identify the target ~10 meters away underwater.
