Paper Abstract

A novel imaging laser radar system using a Tm, Ho:YLF laser, applicable for multi-function such as obstacle warning avoidance, range finding, range mapping and target profiling was fabricated. The maximum field of view of the laser radar image produced with Palmer scanning is 12 degree(s) by 48 degree(s). A tower at 2,500 m was observed, demonstrating its capability for range finding function. Obstacle warning avoidance function and target profiling function was tested by taking the laser radar image of the wires and a car, respectively.
