Abstract

A theoretical analysis of the error probability and the precision of Random Modulation-Continuous Wave LIDAR systems is presented. Both the signal to noise ratio prior and after the correlation process are calculated taking into account the main noise sourc es. Analytical expressions for the estimation of the probability of catastrophic errors in the determination of the distances due to random noise peaks are derived. The effect of the signal to noise ratio on the precision is also theoretically evaluated. As illustrative examples, plots for the signal to noise ratio, the error probability and the precision corresponding to a LIDAR system currently developed in our laboratory are presented.
