Abstract:

In response to a Royal Australian Navy requirement, the Electronics Research Laboratory has developed and evaluated an experimental Laser Airborne Depth Sounder. The system provides discrete soundings, in a rectangular pattern extending 270 m across track, with a nominal spacing between soundings of 10 m. This note describes the experimental system, including the position fixing elements, with emphasis on depth sounding performance. Author
