Paper Abstract

The requirements for a terrain and obstacle database for various applications in guidance and navigation for low level flight and landing will be derived. Applications include displays for flight guidance and situation awareness and algorithms for ground collision avoidance and terrain reference navigation. Different methods used for data acquisition and processing will be discussed with respect to these requirements. The properties of these methods will be demonstrated by generation and validation of an example database.
