ladar

[′lā‚där]
(optics)
A missile-tracking system that uses a visible light beam in place of a microwave radar beam to obtain measurements of speed, altitude, direction, and range of missiles. Derived from laser detecting and ranging. Also known as colidar; laser radar.

If a real-world lift truck veteran like Dave Griffith expects telemetry to become a standard safety feature on lift trucks, I sense that we won't have to wait much longer after that for interfaces to LADAR and LIDAR systems.
"As you fly over the area you can generate your own map using the ladar and feed that into the system."
* Detailed, accurate, long-range images for LADAR users from an environmentally hardened package.
For the LADAR, CAN data interface was chosen (instead of a RS-232 which is the standard interface), because it enables high grabbing speed, up to 1 MBit/s, and it can be easily connected via low cost CAN to USB adaptor to an USB port.
A hybrid iterative algorithm has also been developed for registering three-dimensional LADAR range images obtained from unmanned aerial and ground vehicles (Madhavan, Hong, and Messina 2004).
La ecuacion de Schroedinger no era en un inicio el objeto de estudio: resulto serlo en virtud de la realizacion practica del trabajo de campo (he aqui un ejemplo de la importancia que tiene tras ladar la atencion hacia el proceso de produccion en lugar de orientarla hacia los productos resultantes: podemos hacer explicito que la ecuacion no estaba desde el inicio, que fue el proceso de la investigacion lo que determino que nuestra atencion se centrase en ella).
Active guidance requires that a radar (or LADAR) be located on the weapon itself.
AWASM will feature a laser detection and ranging radar (LADAR) seeker to automatically determine target aim points using demonstrated automatic target acquisition algorithms.

* Turbulence sensing laser-rader called ladar, developed with Nasa and USAF can identify areas of temperature differential too subtle for present methods of detection which indicate fields of wind shear in the upper atmosphere.
Ladar Levison, owner of shut-down secure email service Lavabit, has taken up the challenge and is collaborating with the folks at Silent Circle and convicted hacker Stephen Watt to come up with a solution to the problem.
