Paper Abstract

An eyesafe laser rangefinder technology based on repetitively pulsed diode lasers in the wavelength range between 800 and 900 nm has been developed. Single pulse energies and pulse train mean power have been calculated to be in accordance with eye safety regulations and to provide an optimum signal-to-noise ratio. Applications for this technology are short and long distance range finders which work on non cooperative targets.
