Paper Abstract

We present here the work performed by INO and the Canadian Coast Guard in developing a laser range light using a single site to replace conventional range lights requiring two sites. A single laser source and a temporal coding are used to indicate the vessels' position. The laser output power and wavelength are respectively 80 mW and 532 nm. The range covered is 28 km.
