Paper Abstract

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center has launched four space based laser instruments for Earth and planetary sciences. Three out of four are single beam laser altimeter systems. We are transitioning into multi-beam swath mapping altimeter systems for high-resolution mapping. This paper will discuss the system approach and enabling technologies for swath mapping laser altimetry.
