  author={Robert Moss and Ping Yuan and Xiaogang Bai and Emilio T. Quesada and Rengarajan Sudharsanan Spectrolab and Barry L. Stann and J Francis Dammann and Mark M. Giza},
Future robots and autonomous vehicles require compact low-cost Laser Detection and Ranging (LADAR) systems for autonomous navigation. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) had recently demonstrated a brass-board short-range eye-safe MEMS scanning LADAR system for robotic applications. Boeing Spectrolab is doing a tech-transfer (CRADA) of this system and has built a compact MEMS scanning LADAR system with additional improvements in receiver sensitivity, laser system, and data processing system… CONTINUE READING
