Abstract

The article addresses the development of highly sensitive, low-light and efficient, miniature single-photon sensor technology based on Single Photon Avalanche Diode (SPAD) arrays, its integration on a Flash Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system mounted on a custom built multi-rotor Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) platform, for the collection of real time imagery and performance of neuromorphic processing for accurate target detection and classification.
