Paper Abstract

The relation between obstacle detection LADAR parameters (Detection Range, FOV and FOR) and obstacle detection time in various flight scenarios is analyzed in this work. We show how these engineering parameters can be chosen in order to comply with the operational requirements for a minimum detection time that will enable the helicopter pilot to perform a corresponding obstacle-evasion maneuver. This method was implemented during the development of ElOp's LORD system.
