Paper Abstract

We have developed an advanced angle-angle-range-intensity laser radar system designed for long-range imaging and target discrimination. Brassboard hardware has been built, and performance testing has demonstrated the capability of direct-detection imaging ladar systems to significantly improve probability of target discrimination over passive-only sensors. In this paper we discuss the most recent generation of short-pulse ladar hardware and the results of recent range testing of this hardware against accurate target models. Progress in the development of the next-generation short-pulse laser transmitter and GHz digitizing receiver is also described.
