Abstract : The report presents the results of an investigation into the doppler shifted returns from both translating and rotating specular and diffuse targets at 0.6 and 10.6 microns. The doppler information was recovered through heterodyne techniques which are outlined in detail as to experimental configuration and procedure. The resulting agreement between experimental data and analytical predictions was quite substantial. (Author)
