Abstract:

An innovative approach is proposed to extend traditional 3D ranging Ladar sensors to simultaneously acquiring vibrometry information. The sensor will also have the capacity to acquire polarimetric and spectral data. The combination of these modes of Ladar data will result in a multimode Ladar hardware sensor. Such a multimode sensor can provide independent features, the fusion of which in an ATR system can increase confidence and reliability compared to current systems. ATR system performance of the designed multimode Ladar sensor design will be evaluated. BENEFIT: Developing a multimode Ladar system would provide numerous opportunities to enhance ATR algorithms in other divisions of the Air Force and Department of Defense as well a numerous commercial and industrial applications.
