Abstract

The acronym ITR (Imaging Topological Radar) identifies a family of AM (amplitude-modulated) laser rangefinder prototypes designed and realised at ENEA. The AM rangef inding technique enables to acquire in a single scan an accurate range image and a shade-free, high resolution - grey-scale or native-RGB - reflectivity image, which can be used in 3D rendering as colour information for enhanced realism. ITR systems provide submillimetric range measures up to several tens of meters and can be operated in hostile environments. Particularly important for cultural heritage conservation applications is the capability of ITR systems to integrate 3D models with data acquired independently by other sensors (LIF scanners, vibrometers etc.). As a demonstration, we report the results obtained in a recent measurement campaign carried out in the Sucevita monastery (Romania), concerning the integration of 3D models with vibration maps produced with the Scanning Laser Doppler Vibrometer developed by the Polytechnic University of Marche. © 2008 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
