AbstractA flash ladar sensor technique for obtaining three-dimensional images of target scenes that was demonstrated on a Phase I program will be researched, developed and demonstrated. The effort will include fabrication of a field-test sensor, collection andanalysis of 3-D scene images of various complexities, development and evaluation of 3-D image processing algorithms, and preparation of a roadmap for prototype sensor development. The field test sensor will provide depth resolution of 0.1m at ranges of 1km. Algorithms will address scene decomposition and image understanding tasks and will include design of enhanced aircrew display schemes.
