Abstract
This paper reviews the progress of Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc (ASC). flash ladar 3-D imaging systems and presents their newest single-pulse 128 x 128 flash ladar 3-D images. The heart of the system, a multifunction ROIC based upon both analog and digital processing, is described. Of particular interest is the obscuration penetration function, which is illustrated with a series of images. An image tube-based low-laser-signal 3-D FPA is also presented. A small-size handheld version of the 3-D camera is illustrated which uses an InGaAs lensed PIN detector array indium bump bonded to the ROIC.
