Abstract
We have constructed a small-scale laboratory demonstration of a laser-diode-based radar array for simultaneous coherent ranging and velocimetry of multiple target points. Signals are produced by an array of laser/detector packages in a self-detection geometry with common imaging optics for both the source and backscattered light. The radar has been used with a microcomputer to find the orientation and rotation speed of a spinning disk at an arbitrary position in the field of view.
