Paper Abstract

The current and future laser tracking mission requirements of Sandia National Laboratories are discussed. The capabilities of Sandia's existing laser trackers are summarized. The deficiencies of the current laser trackers are identified with respect to future mission requirements. Candidate commercial technologies are addressed to correct the identified deficiencies. Technology gap areas are identified where additional research needs to be conducted prior to developing an effective next generation laser tracking system
