System and method for detecting an object in a search space

A system for detecting an object of interest in a search space, comprising a radiation signal generator capable of generating a spatially-encoded radiation signal in the search space. The spatially-encoded radiation signal comprises a series of n beams, each having a unique characteristic, radially extending from the radiation signal generator, where n is a positive integer greater than one. The system also comprises a radiation signal collector disposed to detect and transform a reflected radiation signal reflected from the object of interest into a first data signal. The system also comprises a processor capable of transforming the first data signal into positional and vectoral data of the object of interest.
