Long-Range 3-D Lidar May Enhance Military Operations
ESSEX, England, April 18, 2014 — Advancement of 3-D imaging and lidar technologies could spell significant enhancement for target identification, tracking and surveillance, namely in military operations.
A team at Selex ES has developed a lidar system that uses a Geiger-mode (GM) array for single photon counting. It also has the potential to reduce the size, weight and cost of such systems in the future, researchers said.
