Paper Abstract

The Air Force Research Laboratory is using a small-scale heterodyne laser radar (ladar) system for range-resolved imaging, among other applications. This system, called the Heterodyne Imaging Laser Testbed (HILT), is used for obtaining pulsed reflection returns from targets that are located on the ground at a distance of approximately 1 km. Over the past year, the resolution of the HILT's reflection tomographic images has improved from approximately 30 cm to approximately 10 cm. Presented in this paper are a description of HILT and tomographic image reconstructions of ground targets.
