Paper Abstract

Within the framework of the NATO group (NATO SET-132/RTG-72) on imaging ladars, a test was performed to collect simultaneous multi-mode LADAR signatures of maritime objects entering and leaving San Diego Harbor. Beside ladars, passive sensors were also employed during the test which occurred during April 2009 from Point Loma and the harbor in San Diego. This paper will report on 1.5 μm gated imaging on a number of small civilian surface vessels with the aim to present human perception experimental results and comparisons with sensor performance models developed by US Army RDECOM CERDEC NVESD. We use controlled human perception tests to measure target identification performance and compare the experimental results with model predictions.
