Paper Abstract

A compact dual mode sensor is under development at BGT addresssing autonomous guidance, target detection and classification/identification for everal military and civilian applications. The dual mode sensor consists of an imaging infrared sensor and an imagin Ladar sensor both in snapshot mode. This paper presents the concept of the dual mode sensor and shows the current development status. Critical components such as a compact laser source, fiber-array for image plane sampling, wavelength selective infrared beam splitter and micro-lens arrays for Ladar field-of-view steering are presented in detail.
