Paper Abstract

A recent development in three-dimensional imaging is the application of VISIDEP technology to surveillance and reconnaissance. The results of initial efforts to develop a single-source system using a moving platform are reported. These tests clearly demonstrate the feasibility of such a system. Although film was used to achieve the present results, electronic imaging can be used to generate near-real-time three-dimensional video images with delays of less than 3 s. With the continued development of high density video and digital imaging, improved image resolution is easily achievable. The theoretical basis, testing results, and projections for future development are presented in full detail. Potential applications and expectations are discussed briefly as a part of the conclusion drawn from this basic effort.
