Paper Abstract

Active optical imaging sensor concepts lye a number of outstand-ing technology problems. First, to achieve angularly-resolved images at long ranges, extremely large optics are required. These optics may be needed in large quantities. Second, in order to achieve a robust sys-tem which can handle a large number of objects, both the transmitter and receiver must have greater angular agility than mechanical means can provide. For a conventional angle-angle imaging system, receiver agility is the more difficult problem, due to the larger diameter optics required. Finally, laser sources will be required which can provide coherent illumination at sufficient power levels to operate at the desired ranges.
