Operation of CW lidars is analyzed for the case of sensing intensity modulated by symmetrical square pulse signals (of meander type) with a linearly variable repetition rate. The described sensing method combines the properties of both CW and pulsed lidars and thus provides simultaneous realization of their advantages in practice.
