Single Lens, Single Image Passive Ranging

Our single-lens passive ranging systems have been driven by the demands of information theory. Through information theory we can produce necessary conditions for optimum ranging systems that operate with a single-image from a single-aperture system. Ambiguity function design methods are used to form systems that meet these necessary conditions. We have shown that a standard sized system, with a special purpose ranging mask, can produce range estimates with relatative range errors less than 1/1000, or error of one meter when ranging to targets 1000 meters distant.
