Compact 3-D Imaging Camera

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., March 10, 2010 – The Boeing Co. offers 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 and have tested it by attaching it to mobile ground platforms and a Boeing AH-6 Little Bird helicopter. Equipped with advanced sensors that were developed by MIT's Lincoln Laboratory and transferred to Boeing, the cube-shaped camera is one-third the size and uses one-tenth the power of most comparable 3-D imaging cameras.

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.
