Abstract:

The Systems and Process Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will develop the Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL) which will use a proven high accuracy phase detected range circuit to determine range profiling to 1/8-inch accuracy. This circuit allows the ISL to operate as a Class I eye-safe device and still achieve the needed range. The ISL also utilizes ultra short pulse lengths, allowing improved signal to noise level, while still maintaining eye safety and low power dissipation. By carefully choosing the operating frequency of the ISL with respect to the other sensor suite frequencies of the Multispectral Adaptive Networked Tactical Imaging Sensor (MANTIS) system, the ISL output can be fused with the MANTIS sensors to provide sharp discrimination of plants, rocks, painted objects, and advanced camouflaged targets. A display of the three dimensional shape, not distorted by perceived shadows or patterns, allows targets to be easily interpreted. The ISL concept is based on the L-VAS (LADAR Vehicle Alignment System), which uses low cost thumb size LADAR¿¿s with 3mm range resolution yielding the ILS for individual soldier use with up to 3mm range resolution, .5km range, and a field of view up to 90,a at video imaging rates (30Hz).
