Camera System creates 3-D images from up to 1 km away.
The Optical Society (OSA)    Washington, DC 20036
April 15, 2013 A research team, led by Gerald Buller, a professor at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland, describes a time-of-flight imaging system that can gather high-resolution, 3-D information about objects from up to 1 km away. System works by sweeping low-power IR laser beam rapidly over object. It then records round-trip flight time of photons in beam as they bounce off object and arrive back at source. Research paper can be found in OSA's open-access journal Optics Express.
