Abstract:

The authors describe the principles upon which laser locating devices operate. They describe the materials used as lasers, and the methods which can be employed to modulate the laser beam. They discuss the use of lasers in locating systems for determining range, angular coordinates, and contour of a target object, and for tracking such objects after search has concluded. The examples of operating lasers which they cite specifically and the suggestions for future development of laser technology to which they refer are all taken from American publications. Author
