VIDEO LEARNING: Optical Detectors for Atmospheric and Airborne LiDAR

Available On-demand!



Atmospheric Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) is widely used in aviation and aeronautic applications.  LiDAR applications are not only used as tools for scientific studies but also to improve flight safety.  They can measure wind speed, detect ice, microburst, turbulence and volcanic ash during flight at faster speed and further distance in the flight path. The optical detector is one of the essential and crucial component in LiDAR applications.  In this webinar, you will learn about the key parameters of an optical detector that will give LiDAR the advanced detection needed for optimum performance.  

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What atmospheric LiDAR can do
  • What are the advantages of LiDAR as aeronautic sensor 
  • What are the key components in LiDAR and how important is the optical detector in the system
  • What are the key parameters of the optical detector for optimum aeronautic LiDAR performance
