4 May 2007 Performance of laser penetration through forest vegetation
Author Affiliations +
One of the major advantages with laser sensors compared to passive optronic sensors, is the capability to penetrate sparse vegetation. Therefore, the most limiting performance issue is the portion of laser "shots" being absorbed by the foliage. This issue is the main focus in this paper and an analysis of the effect of forest vegetation of Nordic type is presented. The conclusions are based on laser scanner measurement as well as photos. While the analysis covers several elevation angles, the evaluation focuses on ground-to-ground measurements.
