Analysis and Design of a Pulsed GaAs Laser Rangefinder Receiver
A pulsed GaAs laser rangefinder is analyzed and designed for a submunition guidance application. A computer simulation is used to optimize laser power, receiver aperture and preamplifier bandwidth. Two methods of threshold detection are presented and compared. Experimental results include receiver preamplifier transfer function and threshold detector performance.
