Abstract:

In recent years, there has been a rapid growth of LADAR (laser detection and ranging) applications and a growing number of LADARs that are commercially available. As a result, there is a corresponding need to evaluate these instruments. This need provided the stimulus for the workshops conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The first was held on June 12-13, 2003 and the second workshop was held on March 15-16, 2005. Based on the first workshop, the second workshop focused on three topics: terminology, instrument characteristics that were of interest to the LADAR community, and test protocols. This report presents the proceedings from the second workshop.
