Abstract:

Laser range finders are a vital component of high precision targeting engagements. The precise and accurate range-to-target information is an essential variable in the fire control solution of todays sophisticated weapons. This range information is readily provided by the laser range finder, however, current fielded laser range finders are bulky, heavy, difficult to mount onto weapons, eye hazards and very expensive. The US Army CECOM RDEC NVESD is addressing these laser range finder issues in the development of a Micro-Laser Range Finder micro-LRF. The micro-LRF is being developed for the soldier, with his special needs a top priority.
