Laser altimeter for UAV

Un-manned Autonomous Vehicle (UAV) projects depend on sensors to provide spatial information for route planning and crash avoidance.  A developer of an un-manned airplane selected AR3000 distance sensors to measure the height above the ground, whether it was the landing strip, grass, trees or mountains.  They needed a sensor that could measure long distances to surfaces of different reflectivities.
