Paper Abstract

We present the modeling and the performances of a Polarization Active Imager at (lambda) equals 806 nm. The device is operating in a monostatic configuration, using a semiconductor laser to illuminate the target and a telescope to create the image on a CCD matrix. Dual images (intensity and polarization degree) of different scenes are obtained by a new method (only 2 images acquisition) and analyzed, showing the experimental validation of this concept. The application of this active imager to the detection of target buried in the background (same reflectivity but different polarization degree) is proposed.
