    The SLA (Shuttle Laser Altimeter - 02) flight experiment aboard the STS mission (August ) is intended as an incremental step in orbital echo-recovery or "surface lidar". Our goal is to acquire a global database of laser echoes describing a wide range of land cover classes, extending from the boreal forests of Canada and Russia, to the. This paper presents the motivation for, and initial results from, the Multiple Altimeter Beam Experimental lidar (MABEL) instrument. The MABEL instrument provides a new capability for airborne altimetry measurements and serves as a prototype and simulator for the upcoming NASA second-generation Ice, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite (ICESat-2) mission.

Fundamental theories of lasers, their historical development from milliwatts to petawatts in terms of power, operation principles, beam char-acteristics, and applications of laser have been the subject of several books [1–5]. Introduction of lasers, types of laser . laser measurements of the same furrow (Fig. 2). The laser data were analyzed using a 2l-measurement mov- ing average filter. The comparison shows that the laser altimeter can be used to accurately locate and measure gullies as small as cm wide and cm deep from an altitude of m.

You can compare, side-by-side, the “as reported” numbers with the true earnings for any U.S. company. Jim Abshire is the senior scientist for laser sensing for the Solar System Exploration Division. He has helped lead the development of space lidar at NASA GSFC, and was instrument scientist on the Mars Observer Laser Altimeter and the Geoscience Laser Altimeter System on the ICESat mission.

Two-laser altimeters have already been operated from satellite Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA) was launched in aboard the Mars Global Surveyor mission and conducted a multiyear mapping mission of the red planet beginning in early (Smith et al., ).

This laser altimeter system will be used in scientific experiments for the first time in China. GF‐7 laser altimeter system is the first to be equipped with laser footprint cameras and a laser optical axis surveillance camera. The GF‐7 satellite will be launched in Octoberand the scientific experiments will begin in November.

ICESat-2/ATLAS's measurement strategy is new to spaceborne laser altimeters. ICESat's GLAS used an infrared laser that emitted pulses of light 40 times per second (40 Hz), with a per-pulse energy of between 5 and 70 mJ, depending on laser age (Sun et al., ).ATLAS uses green laser light ( nm), pulsing at 10, times per second (10, Hz), with an expected per-pulse energy of.

The LIDAR range data and the AIT angular data play complementary roles because LIDAR is sensitive to the line-of-sight direction from. Depending on the laser altimeter used and the altitude of operation above ground spot sizes of 20 cm (8") to 25 m (85 ft) and strip widths of 50 m ( ft) to 9 km (6 mi) can be achieved.
