Abstract:

In this SBIR program we will develop, design and build new scanning based micro-ladar sensors with unprecedented small size, weight, and power (SWaP), thereby enabling scanning ladar deployment on previously inaccessible platforms such as satellites. The system will range out to>1 km, have high frame rates, high resolution (up to 1000 x 1000), high range accuracy (<15 cm), weigh only tens of grams, be constructed from space deployable technologies with no-moving parts. The enabling technology for the proposed Micro-LADAR system is a combination of two new electro-optic laser scanning technologies: high speed refractive continuous scanners with a 60o?15o field of view (FOV) and diffractive-waveplate discrete or step-wise scanners to boost the total FOV up to 120o?120o. The results will be a very low-power, long-life (no moving parts), radiation hard, micro-LADAR.
