Abstract:

Not Available This is a proposal for an Advanced Discrimination Ladar Receiver (ADLR). The ADLR concept is based upon state-of-the-art integrated circuits and image tube technology. The concept is very innovative with enormous potential for increasing performance above existing multiple-independent-channel, discrimination-ladar-receiver designs used for reentry vehicle and decoy discrimination. Simulations show the range resolution of the ADLR is less than 15 cm and the spatial resolution is, for practical purposes, limited only by chip size; 128 x 128 pixels are possible. Data is multiplexed off the integrated circuit readout chip during laser pulses and so the receiver is not limited by real-time, multiple-independent-channel processing. A 12-bit digitizer can easily be used at the output of the sensor; real-time designs are limited to 2-3 bits. There are also substantial reductions in weight and size over the conventional receiver approach
