Paper Abstract

An active/passive CO2 laser radar target acquisition sensor has been developed through cooperation of the United States Army, Navy and Air Force. The Tri-Service Laser Radar (TSLR) produces pixel-registered range, velocity, active signal intensity and passive thermal emission data. Fusion of the active and passive information allows for improved characterization and discrimination between manmade objects and natural background clutter. Simple feature synergy of the pixel-registered active and passive infor-mation also provides robust cues for wire detection algorithms.
