Abstract
A flash ladar sensor technique for detecting and locating Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) will be researched, developed and demonstrated. Intended to reduce casualties from terrorist-planted bombs, the sensor will apply the Spectra Research Range Slice Ladar (RASL) in a change detection mode to find newly placed objects along convoy routes. The effort will include adaptation of an existing sensor, demonstration flight testing, and preparation of a prototype development plan.
