Abstract
Range-gated or burst illumination systems have recently drawn a great deal of attention concerning the use for target classification. The development of eye safe lasers and detectors will make these systems ideal to be combined with thermal imagers for long range targeting at night but also for short range security applications like reading of signs and licence plates, looking into cars and buildings etc. Examples of imagery collected for different range and atmospheric conditions will be presented and discussed with respect to image quality and processing techniques.
