Paper Abstract

Active remote sensing returns information of the highest value at the lowest cost when outgoing energy can be carefully shaped and directed to the task at hand. This paper presents results of lab and airborne testing of an Electronically Steerable Flash Lidar (ESFL) under continuing development by Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp. The results highlight the adaptive nature of this and other active instruments having fine control of illumination, and show the benefits of combining lab simulation with flight testing in validation of algorithms and control design.
