Range-imaging devices are useful in various applications, both on the ground and in space. In this paper a prototype imaging pulsed time-of-flight laser range finder is presented. The range finder produces an image with 36 pixels, each containing distance and reflectivity information. The scannerless structure is robust and provides instantaneous snapshot-type imaging. An integrated video camera provides high-resolution grey-level images.
