Paper Abstract

Hughes Danbury Optical Systems (HDOS) has developed and flight tested a unique GaAs laser radar which produces high resolution 3-D imagery of the terrain beneath the aircraft. This line scanner is described along with the design parameters used to develop the current model. Improvements planned for the sensor include the addition of an IR channel which would be used to provide passive imagery for target cueing. This would have the effect of reducing the system processing requirements while simultaneously increasing the probability of detection (POD) and reducing the false alarm performance.
