Abstract : A pulse of luminant energy of short duration is reflected from a target as an echo source of both two dimensional target depth distance data by optical gating of the echo pulse at one receiving location. The pulse is thereby divided into image depth slices under control of timing signals in order to extract there form three dimensional imaging data during its short duration.
