Abstract
High-resolution lidar imaging provides fully three-dimensional images that have distinct advantages in comparison to two-dimensional images for target detection and identification. Advantages provided by the additional range information improvements in clutter removal improving detection, to lower false alarm rates due by improving identification, and to provide an additional dimension for classification. Aret, will exploit its understanding of lidar mine detection and identification coupled with its engineering expertise to develop a 3D camera designed to detect threats in the Surf Zone and Very Shallow Water. The key innovation is a novel readout integrated circuit (ROIC) design that provides higher dynamic range (>12 bits), faster sampling (
