In this manuscript, we propose and experimentally demonstrate our synthetic aperture LADAR (SAL) system. The system could obtain imageries in a few milliseconds with resolution of 5 cm from a long distance. Fine resolution in the range dimension was obtained by transmitting LADAR signal with large bandwidth. While in the cross-range dimension, the large synthetic aperture diameter provided fine resolution. By employing continuous translational motion of SAL system, a large aperture diameter was obtained through synthetic aperture processing. So the diffraction limit of real aperture diameter was overcome and finer resolution was achieved. Indoor and outdoor experiments were both performed and the corresponding results were showed. Results validated the feasibility of our system and processing algorithm.
