Paper Abstract

This paper discusses new techniques for providing a `FLIR like', multi-pixel range receiver for applications of control and guidance by an active LADAR system. The major tradeoffs in developing a LADAR sensor with multi-pixel high resolution capabilities using conventional techniques are large size, high cost, or a slow frame rate. SEO has conceived and is currently developing a new receiver technique using a Charge Coupled Device array element that shows great promise for overcoming all of these drawbacks. Although this technique is a new approach for LADAR sensors, it is a concept that has been used for decades in the receivers of common-module FLIR systems.
