Paper Abstract

Raytheon has developed a new tactical form-factored, imaging LADAR (LAser Detection And Ranging) seeker. In a joint activity with AMRDEC, the seeker was used in a tower test data collection at the Russell Measurement Facility at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. The seeker collected 3D imagery of fixed structures and vehicles embedded in various clutter backgrounds for use in analysis of computer vision and automatic target recognition techniques. This paper presents a high-level overview of the seeker, a description of the test activities, representative LADAR range and intensity imagery collected during the test, and 3D rendered scenes constructed from the imagery.
