A confocal, unstable resonant cavity and hybrid system was retrofitted to an existing Handheld Laser Designator HLD. Performance characteristics of the retrofitted laser with a conventional version are compared. Unique capabilities of the unstable resonator are described, and recommendations for future development based on test results and experimentation are included.
