Completion of Underwater Imaging LiDAR Tests off Coronado

Last week we completed the first test of our underwater imaging lidar system in a target range off Coronado. The system worked very well and recorded some outstanding images of our resolution target and other targets. The tow platform and supporting system electronics worked well in spite of some less than ideal conditions.

We also compared the performance of the laser imaging system to a mockup conventional camera system (shown below).
