Abstract
We present a high-resolution direct-detection commercially-available scanning LIDAR making use of digitizing the echo signal and providing these waveforms for a subsequent full waveform analysis for extracting target characteristics. The scanning LIDAR is intended primarily for airborne applications providing significant advantages in forestry applications but indicates also high potential for demanding applications requiring high penetration, multiple targets per laser pulse, and high multi-pulse resolution. We present test data to demonstrate the capabilities of the echo-digitizing scanning LIDAR.
