Paper Abstract

Two new approaches to search and rescue using LIDAR techniques will be discussed; these topics will include laser retroreflection and laser-induced fluorescence. These techniques use high-repetition rate lasers at a variety of frequencies to induce either retroreflection from plastic corner cubes on life preservers and other emergency markers or fluorescence in dye markers placed in the ocean.
