A working breadboard model of a laser-based missile tracking and ranging system was designed and developed. The system was evaluated under actual rnge conditions where it was demonstrated its capabilities in tracking 2. 75- and 5-inch rockets over the initial portion of their flights. The system is a self-contained mobile unit containing several subsystems. Each subsystem is an independent unit in that it can be modified to meet specific requirements without affecting other subsystems. Sufficient flexibility is inherent in the system to render it useful as a research tool or as a standard range instrumentation item.
