Whitepaper3D Flash LIDAR for UGV Night Vision, Navigation and Mapping Applications

Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) produces a compact 3D Flash LIDAR camera (3DFLC), the TigerEye (Figure 1), designed for terrestrial eye-safe 3D imaging at frame rates of approximately 20Hz. Figure 2 is an example of a 3D image taken by the camera, an aircraft in flight in the TigerEye’s trigger mode. The 3D focal plane array (3D FPA) of the TigerEye is also capable of an imaging mode called SULAR (staring underwater laser radar) which allows imaging through dust, smoke and fog. Figure 3 is an example of imaging through smoke. The current TigerEye FPA is 128 x 128 with larger arrays in development.
