Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and expected performance of the Laser Range Finder (LRF) as part of the Rendez-Vous Sensor (RVS) on the Automatic Transfer Vehicle and the H II Transfer Vehicle for the International Space Station. The LRF determines the distance between the RVS and a target (retro-reflector) by measuring the time-of-flight of a short laser pulse.
