Abstract
This paper reviews the progress of Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc (ASC) large format flash ladar 3-D imaging systems for longer-range applications. Single-laser-pulse images are taken from a manned flight test at 1000 - 2000 ft demonstrating not only the 3-D mapping potential of the system but also its use in object identification. Gated images on the ground exemplify vehicle identification applications. Use of signal amplitude information in enhancing the 3-D image is also illustrated.
