Title: Sensitivity modulated imaging systems with shearing interferometry and related methods

Abstract: An imaging system. Implementations of imaging systems may include a laser light source, at least one imaging detector coupled to the laser light source, a shearing interferometer coupled to at least one imaging detector, and a timing system coupled to the at least one imaging detector and the laser light source. A ranging detector may be coupled to the laser light source and the timing system, and at least on sensitivity modulator may be coupled with the at least one imaging detector and with the timing system.
