Abstract
The paper discusses recent results of flight tests performed with the Hensoldt (former Airbus DS Electronics and Border Security) LiDAR system in brownout. The SferiSense® LiDAR system was mounted on a Mi-2 test platform as part of the complete DVE system SFERION® to undergo the tests. To optimize brownout capabilities minor modifications were performed on the sensor firmware over the SferiSense® serial LiDAR system which is in operational use on the NH90 transport helicopter. Also dust echoes were filtered out by a real-time filtering algorithm. Numerous approaches into own ship generated dust (light to heavy) as well as fan generated dust clouds (chalk 2 scenarios) were performed. The paper discusses the results and shows under which conditions the LiDAR can still look through the dust cloud. Also the contribution of high resolution real-time 3D LiDAR data to the DVE system usage is discussed.
