EFFECT OF DENSE ATMOSPHERIC ENVIRONMENT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF LASER RADAR SENSORS USED FOR COLLISION AVOIDANCE

In this paper, the authors analyze the operation of laser radar in a collision avoidance system under poor visibility conditions. It is found that signals that were scattered as a result of laser radiation led to good performance. The results of this research are expected to significantly reduce the high false alarm rate that is common in collision avoidance systems operating under dense atmospheric conditions.
