Abstract
In the field of underwater sensing, the rang-gated imaging based on the principle of “time slice” is an effective way to suppress backscatter and improve operating distance. In this paper, a kind of underwater range-gated imaging system which selects the LD end-pumped solid laser as the illuminator is described. Comparing to the traditional ones using the lamp-pumped Nd: YAG laser, the prime characteristics of the new designed underwater range-gated imaging system lie in the dramatic dropping of single pulse energy and the dramatic increasing of pulse repetition frequency, and the resultant change of echo receiving pattern throughout the image formation. The advantage and disadvantage of the change is first analysed in this paper, and then the underwater range-gated imaging system with high pulse repetition frequency (HPRF) laser is introduced. Finally, the experiment results in the indoor tank and the corresponding analysis is provided.
