then faster scan rate will help.Getting to current performance upgrade paths – things to consider Do you need faster pulse rate? Are you currently limited by pulse rate in achieving higher point density? If yes. then faster scan rate will help. make sure that current maximum laser pulse rate is adequate to deliver required cross track spacing . then faster pulse rate could help. Do you need faster scan rate? Are your currently limited by scan rate in achieving desired along track spacing? If yes. Can you fly lower than ~500 m AGL (1PiA) or ~1100 m AGL (MPiA)? If no. Before opting for scan rate upgrade. then you may not be able to access the higher pulse rate. Would you like to fly faster and achieve your current along track spacing? If yes.
