We present a proof-of-principal implementation of a single-pixel lidar for 3D imaging. Spatial resolution is obtained through compressive sensing. This technique allows for imaging through partially obscuring objects, such as foliage or camouflage net. Our implementation improves on multipixel designs with better SNR, a compact design, and highly scalable resolution.
