We introduce a simple model for predicting the free space loss of a LIDAR sensor aimed at a Lambertianscattering target at normal incidence. This model is validated through an experimental investigation of the coupled optical power using different optical collimators for a LIDAR sensor in which we observe good agreement with our model.
