Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the development of an imaging laser radar system working with a gated viewing camera at the eye- safe wavelength of 1574nm. The system is compared to an eye- safe imaging scanner system at 1574nm and a gated viewing system working at 532nm. The requirements for the system are a range between 0.5 to 4km at bad weather conditions and a high vertical and horizontal resolution. Therefore we examine the different imaging laser radar systems with a computer simulation tool, especially the capabilities and performance at different weather conditions. The laser radar should be part of a real-time 3D-visualization system for enhanced and synthetic vision to detect real objects in the field of view.
