Abstract
Equations for laser radar heterodyne efficiency are derived by assuming that heterodyne detection is degraded by phase-front distortion produced by target speckle and atmospheric turbulence. These equations are numerically evaluated for representative target detection scenarios to illustrate the effects of laser speckle on coherent laser radar detection.
