Paper Abstract

A significant challenge in the CZMIL program was to develop a topographic/bathymetric lidar delivering high spatial resolution 3D data in shallow, turbid waters, without sacrificing performance in deeper waters. To support analysis of the trade space inherent in the design process, we developed a waveform simulator capable of predicting CZMIL waveforms by varying parameters of the physical design and environmental properties of the seafloor and water column. Here, we describe the predicted performance of the proposed hardware and algorithms for generating seafloor point clouds in a number of simulated environments.
