Paper Abstract

Factors affecting the selection of laser rangefinder design for long-range surface-to-air and airborne ranging applications are discussed. Several candidate designs (including Nd:YAG, Raman-shifted Nd:YAG, and CO2 direct detection and CO2, 13C isotopic CO2 and frequency-doubled CO2 heterodyne detection systems) are summarized and their performance is analyzed. The 13C isotopic CO2 and frequency-doubled CO2 heterodyne detection systems significantly outperform all other candidates.
