This paper presents the construction and a performance study of a fiber-based frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) laser radar for measurement of distance and velocity. The current to a distributed feedback laser (DFB) was modulated to get the frequency modulated light used to construct the fiber based laser radar system. The Allan variance was used for evaluating the stability of the laser radar system. To optimize the system, the performance with different modulation frequencies was compared. The minimum measurable distances for 10 Hz, 50 Hz and 100 Hz modulation frequency system are 0.1, 0.1 and 0.8 cm respectively.
