MODULAR LADAR SENSOR
Publication/Patent Number: US2020025895A1 Publication Date: 2020-01-23 Application Number: 16/380,697 Filing Date: 2019-04-10 Inventor: Gilliland, Patrick   Heughebaert, Laurent   Spagnolia, Joseph   Short brad   Stettner, Roger   Assignee: CONTINENTAL ADVANCED LIDAR SOLUTIONS US, LLC.   IPC: G01S7/486 Abstract: A lightweight, inexpensive LADAR sensor incorporating 3-D focal plane arrays is adapted specifically for modular manufacture and rapid field configurability and provisioning. The sensor generates, at high speed, 3-D image maps and object data at short to medium ranges. The techniques and structures described may be used to extend the range of long range systems as well, though the focus is on compact, short to medium range ladar sensors suitable for use in multi-sensor television production systems and 3-D graphics capture and moviemaking. 3-D focal plane arrays are used in a variety of physical configurations to provide useful new capabilities.
