Paper Abstract

One of the most important qualifications of laser range finder is the ranging distance. The ranging distance of laser range finder is usually supplied with a atmosphere condition. To reach the qualification of ranging distance, the manufacturers always increase the laser emitting power which the laser range finders can work not only in the ranging distance. It is important to find the real ranging distance in different visibility especially for military application. The maximum ranging distances in different visibility were discussed in the paper. First, the power of different types of laser range finder was got by experiment. The power of two models of laser range finder was got, and the power of same model but two serial numbers was obtained. Then, the fluctuation regularity was discussed. Then, the maximum ranging distances in different visibility were got by numerical simulation. The maximum ranging distances of laser range finder with same model but two serial numbers were calculated. The figures of maximum ranging distances varying with visibility were obtained. It was showed that the maximum ranging distances of laser range finder with same model but two serial numbers were different.
