22.2 Dropouts and surface intensities
The reflectivity of the surface affects the strength of the laser return, and may cause dropouts even when the
xxx system is functioning correctly. Dropouts are usually caused by low-intensity surfaces. However,
dropouts can also occur under the following conditions:
By contrast, highly reflective surfaces produce higher-intensity return signals that may saturate the receiver.
Some sample intensities are:
When the laser swath
Dropouts expected, because the water reflects a portion of the
laser pulses away from the aircraft
Wide beam divergence Dropouts may occur, if this mode spreads out the available
laser energy over too wide an area
Increase in collection altitude
Dropouts may occur, if the reduced energy return is too weak
to be detected
