Multispectral Laser Head for Terrain Identification and Analysis
Languages of publication
The reflectance profilometer, constructed in Institute of Optoelectronics, Military University of Technology, is an optoelectronic device based on the laser remote sensing technique, designed for use on unmanned aerial vehicles. The main task of the profilometer is to analyze the reflectance signals for laser radiation from the multispectral range: 850, 905, and 1550 nm. On the basis of the analysis the profilometer enables two fundamental functions: to define the shape of the ground and identify elements of terrain coverage, along with analysis of its physicochemical properties. The reflectance profilometer is a system based on a modern concept of measurement, allowing to obtain unique information about tested objects, whose measurements or detection are not possible by means of thermal imaging systems and systems operating in the visible range. The received information is visualized in 3D format, which allows for more accurate, precise and comprehensive way of analyzed area model presentation.
