In this thesis, I developed three-dimensional laser-speckle models to help in the development process of three-dimensional optical-metrology imaging systems. These models were developed to aid in the proof of concept for various three-dimensional metrology techniques. These models were then compared to real-world imaging systems, developed by both the author and other staff at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, to determine their ability to accurately model said imaging systems. I also looked at the laser speckle statistics associated with mid-field systems in an exo-atmospheric environment as they relate to LADAR.
