As a part of the project agreement between the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) and the United States of American's Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), a joint field trial was performed in Sweden during two weeks in January 2009. The main purpose for this trial was to characterize AFRL's latest version of the ASC (Advanced Scientific Concepts [1]) FLASH 3D LADAR sensor. The measurements were performed essentially in FOI´s optical hall whose 100 m indoor range offers measurements under controlled conditions minimizing effects such as atmospheric turbulence. Data were also acquired outdoor in both forest and urban scenarios, using vehicles and humans as targets, with the purpose of acquiring data from more dynamic platforms to assist in further algorithm development. This paper shows examples of the acquired data and presents initial results.
