Flash ladar is a new class of range imaging sensors. Unlike traditional ladar devices that scan a collimated laser beam over the scene, flash ladar illuminates the entire scene with diffuse laser light. Recently, several companies have begun offering demonstration flash ladar units commercially. In this work, we seek to characterize the performance of two such devices, examining the effects of target range, reflectance and angle of incidence, as well as mixed pixel effects.
