Course Instructor
SC838: Laser Range Gated Imaging Techniques
This course provides attendees with a detailed background in the benefits and applications of laser gated imaging, also known as Burst Illumination Ladar (BIL). This technique covers the use of laser illumination in conjunction with focal plane arrays to improve the ability to detect and identify objects across a wide range of scenarios. The course concentrates on the components involved in such a system, the phenomena that are unique to laser illumination, and the performance one can expect from laser illuminated sensing. Practical examples to demonstrate the benefits and limitations of these systems will be covered. At the end of this course, you will be knowledgeable in the types of sources and sensors that can be used and the image processing that can be applied to optimize the system performance.
