Experimental Study of the Hybrid Laser Radar


Objectives: The aim of this work was to perform experimental studies of hybrid laser radar as an intermediate option between the classical scanning pulsed laser radar and a system built in accordance with a 3D-Flash LADAR technology. Methods: The studies were performed on the ground optical track using modern equipment for the registration of measurement results. Modern methods of mathematical modeling were applied for data processing. Findings: Hybrid laser radar provided location frame frequency significantly greater than the frequency of the classical pulse radar, without the use of a matrix photodetector required for 3D-Flash LADAR. Frame frequency of 28 frames per second was obtained in the experimental settings with the view field of 20×20°. A signal/noise ratio was also determined imitating maximal operating range of 2 km on the ground track or of 5 km in space. Improvements: Hybrid laser radar can be used in robotic systems as a 3D technical vision system.
