Laser range profiling is attractive because it can be seen as an extension from an ordinary laser range finder. The same laser can also be used for active imaging when the target comes closer and is angular resolved. This paper will discuss laser profiling for target recognition both as a standalone method and in combination with low transverse resolution imaging. Example of both simulated and experimental data for stationary and in flight targets will be investigated and analyzed for target classification purposes.
