Abstract:

Modeling of the performance of laser-based imaging systems has progressed to the point where simulated images are being produced and compared against actual imagery from these systems. For a researcher, this is the ultimate assessment tool by which to predict the performance of a particular system, as well as to compare the performance of different systems in ocean waters characterized by the same optical properties. These simulated images can be visually compared side by side for two competing systems such as the Laser Line Scanner LLS and Streak Tube Imaging Lidar STIL.
