High Resolution, High Sensitivity LIDAR for Robotic Space Operation Support, Phase I

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

Design of an advanced 3D LIDAR Receiver is proposed which enables low SWaP LIDAR systems with significantly increased numbers of detectors allowing 3D imagery to be obtained over large areas, with high resolution (cm), high sensitivity (near single photon counting capability), high dynamic range ( 10^5) and high sample rates (GHz) when operated with high pulse rate fiber lasers. These characteristics enable accurate robotic operations under conditions of uncertainty. Operating in SWIR will permit LIDAR operation without inducing noise effects in Vis/VNIR passive sensors which may be operating simultaneously and near the LIDAR. The technical approach will support a wide ,UV to MWIR, spectrum of operating wavelengths by change out of photocathode and optimization of the subsequent amplification and readout parameters.
