Abstract

Performance of a range gated system is strongly affected by the laser, sensor, target, and atmospheric parameters. This paper performs a theoretical analysis to investigate the influence of multiple factors on range gated reconstruction. The effects of several factors are discussed based on the operating principle of range gated reconstruction, fundamental of radiant energy, signal to noise ratio (SNR), and bidirectional reflection distribution function (BRDF) models. The presented findings establish a comprehensive understanding of the influence factors in range gated reconstruction which are of interest to various applications and future improvement works to perform accurate range correction and compensation.
