Abstract
In Australia airborne laser hydrography has been researched and developed over a period of 18 years from a concept into a fully integrated operational unit in the Royal Australian Navy. This paper reviews the first three years of operation and considers recent developments and findings. These include surface reflections as a surface reference level, depth accuracy and detection capability over small shoals and the effect of turbidity on depth measurement. Also discussed are operational aspects relevant to laser hydrography.
