Paper Abstract

The rapid development of laser radar technology combined with the challenging needs for Army sensors to support the Future Combat System has led to a number of applications for 3D imaging systems. These systems applications include obstacle detection, target recognition, locating targets under foliage, UGV route planning and navigation and terrain mapping. Each application requires different system parameters such as pulse energy, repetition rate, and field of view. A number of issues must be addressed in the design of a system including atmospheric effects, laser energy requirements, wavelength selection and field of view.
