Paper Abstract

The design of a laser rangefinder based on a frequency doubled Co laser is described. An AgGaS2 crystal is used to double the output of a Co2 laser from the 9.4 micron band to 4.7 microns. A monostatic approach is adopted in the design of the rangefinder and a cooled CMT detector is used to detect the return radiation.
