Introduction:

Laser RADAR and Applications Training Course Description

Major technology advancements in Laser Radar (LADAR) have made a profound new impact on future mobile, airborne and space-based missions. In an effort to cope with problems such as target clutter, battlefield commanders require a new breed of LADAR, consisting of new programs such as Jigsaw and True 3D Flash. New LADAR systems and applications are currently in development, and will be based on entirely new technology, which has not been feasible until just now. These new LADAR technologies will support the Service-wide drive for a Single Integrated Air Picture (SIAP), which provides military forces access to reliable information about ground, air, space or undersea threats in any given theater of operations to achieve total theater air dominance. Developmental challenges are vast for LADAR and opportunities for industry involvement appear to be endless.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
