Laser Radar (LADAR) is similar to millimeter wave radar, but uses lasers to scan and processes the signal echoed from targets, in order to create a 3-D virtual picture of the area. Due to its capability to scan large areas with very high precision, and its ability to gradually build a detailed picture of the area under surveillance, LADAR sensors are usually employed on loitering systems which can look at the target from different angles and match them to templates stored in its onboard processors. As the technology progressed, people also realized that they could use the ladar to look through cover such as trees, towers and camouflage.

With conventional, two-dimensional imaging, it is possible to see only through the holes in a tree covering, for example. But because it produces images from multiple angles and collates them into a single 3-D picture, the LADAR essentially sees around the trees. This is the purpose of the Jigsaw program.


Jigsaw ladar will fly over a target to collect images from multiple angles (a) and feed them to a processor (b), which will produce a composite (c).
