Advanced Applications of Laser Radar and Remote Sensing


Fabio Di Teodoro, The Aerospace Corporation, USA 

This topical review will address cutting-edge research and development of laser-based standoff sensors from a system standpoint to include new laser transmitters, detectors, and advanced sensing concepts. Examples include sensors deployed in ground, airborne and space-based platforms for reconnaissance and imaging, environmental/meteorological studies, chemical/biological detection as well as autonomous navigation. Such systems must address many technological challenges including the design, performance improvement, maturation, and qualification of suitable laser transmitters and detectors; minimization of size, weight, power consumption, and cost; increase in ruggedness and support for operation in thermo-mechanically harsh environments; and improvement of long-term reliability.
