SC1103: 3D Imaging Laser Radar
This course will explain the basic principles of operation and the fundamental theoretical basis of 3D imaging laser radar systems. An analytical approach to evaluation of system performance will be presented. The design and applications of 3D imaging laser radars which employ staring arrays and flying spot scanned architectures; linear, Geiger mode and heterodyne detection; pulse, amplitude, frequency and hybrid modulation formats; and advanced system architectures will be discussed. Optimization strategies and trade space boundaries will be described. Major system components will be identified and effects of the limitations of current component performance will be identified. These limitations will form the basis of a discussion of current research objectives.
SC167: Introduction to Laser Radar
This course explains the principles of operation and the basis of laser radar systems. An analytical approach to the evaluation of system performance is presented. This approach is derived from physical optics and from classical antenna theory. Practical applications for laser radar and alternative system architectures are described. Major system components are identified.
SC168: Advanced Laser Radar Design And Applications
This course identifies the procedures and the requirements for a comprehensive laser radar design and performance analysis. Using a detailed examination of the design process for military and industrial applications, the course covers system level requirements as applied to diversified applications, development, and the allocation of requirements for the major subsystems. Candidate system designs, trades space optimizations and compromises and component options are presented. Advanced Geiger-mode, waveform capture, heterodyne and homodyne detection systems, transmitter modulation techniques and compatible formats are emphasized. System architectures, subsystem approaches and component options are compared. Machine vision, 3-D imaging systems, unmanned vehicle sensors, atmospheric sensing, and chemical detection systems are used to illustrate the design techniques.
