Paper Abstract

We investigate a novel quantum based active imaging system for remote sensing that has inherent resistance to hostile detection and jamming. It is an advanced quantum ghost imaging setup, which does not rely on preliminary information on the distances of objects. The photon source of the setup will be suited for standoff detection with illumination of remote objects in the infrared, while retrieving the spatial information in the visible regime with matured silicon technology. Due to inherent randomness of illumination patterns in space and time only the observer is able to distinguish illumination photons from ambient background noise by position- and time-correlation of entangled partner photons.
