Paper Abstract

Laser Gated Imaging is a unique camera technology. It provides long-range night vision in complete darkness as well as in degraded weather conditions, such as rain, fog and haze. Burst illumination laser (BIL) imaging combines an active laser illumination with time gating (or range gating) camera. For these reasons, BIL imaging has become increasingly important in Defense and security applications. In an associated paper [01], we present a model (PIAF) developed to evaluate the relevant physical phenomena (scintillation, speckle...) impacting on the BIL imaging. This paper presents preliminary experimental results and comparisons with PIAF simulations.
