Paper Abstract

The technical issues of a standoff electro-optic tripwire detector are discussed. Significant advances in short-wave infrared (SWIR) laser diodes and InGaAs detector technologies have made it possible for the demonstration of a passive and active eyesafe (1.5 micron) laser illuminated tripwire (ELIT) detector. The demonstrated system utilizes COTS laser diodes and cameras. The Hough Transform was used for the detection of tripwires in images. System trade-offs are discussed and images are shown.
