Abstract
A flash ladar sensor concept for obtaining three-dimensional images of target scenes will be designed and demonstrated. The sensor will provide depth resolution at maximum ranges. The low-cost sensor will incorporate minor modifications to existing flashladar hardware and will provide maps of target reflectance and depth, and a target-integrated range signature. The Phase I effort will include demonstration of the sensor approach and formulation of a design for a prototype system.The flash ladar sensor tobe designed on the proposed program will provide a near-term, low-cost method for obtaining target depth profiles. These profiles are expected to enable improved target recognition and identification. The sensor technology will also be suitable forrobotics, metrology, and transportation applications.
