A pseudorandom pulse erbium fiber laser was developed and used to demonstrate a simultaneous range and Doppler RRDI signal from a moving target. The modelocking is done passively, with an InGaAsP-based Bragg mirror and MQW structure butted up to the fiber at one end. The fiber laser output coupler is a very weak fiber Bragg grating. By antireflection coating the passive modelocking mirror, the pulse switching threshold is made low enough that many pulses can be generated in each round trip.
