The laboratory model of a bistatic laser monitor which images objects and processes with amplified brightness is presented. The bistatic laser monitor is a laser active optical system, which includes two active elements. There are illumination source and optical signal converter (brightness amplifier) with pumping sources and a high-voltage modulator for synchronization of their operating modes. The illumination source and the brightness amplifier are based on active media in copper bromide vapors. The dependence of the image quality on the time lag between amplification and illumination pulses is determined. The parameters of images formed in monostatic and bistatic laser monitors are compared. The results of process imaging under background radiation conditions with the laboratory model developed are presented.
