P11 - Experimental Comparison of a Gated-Viewing System and a 3-D Flash LADAR System in Terms of Range Precision Under Different Turbulence Conditions

B. Göhler & P. Lutzmann
For security and military applications, long-range automatic target recognition is a very important task. Therefore, in addition to a 2-D passive or active intensity image, 3-D information of a target is desirable. Besides a LADAR system, also a Gated-Viewing system can provide depth information by simply sliding the gate through the scenery. In this work, the Gated-Viewing camera LIVAR 500 (Intevac, 640 x 480 pixels (binning mode), EBCMOS) is compared to a 3-D Flash LADAR...
