Assemble, test, and integrate a miniaturized LiDAR imaging camera and deployable inflatable for target.

Description

Assemble, test, and integrate a miniaturized LiDAR imaging camera. A parallel development will also design and test a deployable inflatable that will serve as the lidar camera's primary imaging target. Use a miniaturized LiDAR imaging camera to demonstrate cm-level altimetry precision over tens of kilometers by deploying an inflatable that will serve as the imaging target.
