Abstract : The retrodirective reflecting properties of a corner reflector can be used to aim a laser beam. When portions of a corner reflector are placed in front of a laser and its aiming telescope, then an image of the laser beam is superimposed on the telescope image to show the exact target area being illuminated by the beam.
