A study was made to determine the feasibility of using an airborne laser profilometer system to rapidly appraise selected unprepared landing sites. Evaluation of terrain roughness was made in terms of microrelief, slope, and obstructions. Laser profilometer data were collected at 12 test areas that provided variations in surface geometry, vegetation cover, and other natural and man-made features. Modified author abstract
