Ultra-compact, High Resolution, LADAR System for 3D Imaging, Phase II

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Ultra-compact, High Resolution, LADAR System for 3D Imaging, Phase II
NASA requires a small, lower power "ranging" sensor that produces a depth map of the scene (the exterior of the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station or a future Space Solar Power Satellite) to inspect for damage. By combining innovative designs with MEMS-based scanners and off the shelf electronic and optical components, this program will develop a low power, miniature LADAR system with 1 mm resolution at 10 meters weighing <300 g, costing orders of magnitude less compared to the state-of-the art systems. This LADAR will be capable of providing high resolution 3-D images of Space Shuttle Thermal Protection System for damage assessment. More »
