The objective of this program was to investigate optical resonator properties relevant to the improvement of laser systems suitable for military designatorrangefinder applications. A study of the particular characteristics of a negative-branch, unstable resonator laser was performed. Laboratory experimentation revealed unique aspects which offer a new approach to solutions of existing technological problems of beam quality, operational efficiency and reliability, and boresight stability.
