LIDAR technologies for Autonomous vehicles, battlefield visualization, weapon guidance and anti-submarine warfare

Remote sensing means that we aren’t actually physically measuring things with our hands. We are using sensors that capture information about a landscape and record things that we can use to estimate conditions and characteristics. LiDAR, or light detection ranging (sometimes also referred to as active laser scanning) is one …
