3-D Imaging Camera

Photonics Spectra
Jul 2010
Request Info
 
The Boeing Company is offering a compact, energy-efficient camera that provides 3-D images for military and commercial applications. Boeing Directed Energy Systems and wholly owned Boeing subsidiary Spectrolab have jointly developed the camera. It can be deployed on unmanned aerial and ground vehicles and can be customized to accommodate customer requirements. It can be used for mapping terrain, tracking targets and seeing through foliage. To create a 3-D image, it fires a short pulse of laser light, then measures the pulse’s flight time to determine how far away each part of the camera’s field of view is.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
target
1. The anode or anticathode of an x-ray tube that emits x-rays when bombarded by electrons. 2. The screen in a television imaging tube that is scanned by an electron beam to determine the charge-density stored on it.
tracking
1. The process of following an object's movement; accomplished by focusing a radar beam on the reticle of an optical system on the object and plotting its bearing and distance at specific intervals. 2. In display technology, use of a light pen to move an object across a display screen.
