Paper Abstract

In this paper SPARTA reports on the design and field testing of a flexible low-cost diode-based ladar system. It serves as a data collection and research tool that can image extended targets to ranges exceeding 1.0 km and wirelike targets to ranges of 250 m. Range imagery is presented and discussed that illustrates the application to helicopter obstacle avoidance, geophysical mapping, and surveillance.
