Abstract:

Terrain sensing in high clutter environments commonly encountered in battlefield operations continues to be an operational concern. Clutter, such as battlefield debris, dust, smoke, and obscurants make the use of non-touch terrain sensing solutions difficult. In the first step to obtaining a non-touch sensor solution, live modeling of a DynaVision SPR-02 Intelligent Single Point Sensor will be conducted. This sensor is a laser source non-contact optical displacement measurement system. Scanning is accomplished by projecting a continuous light beam onto a surface and detecting the wave image of this beam on a Charge Coupled Device CCD array.
