Paper Abstract

The traditional submarine periscope optical layout and the modern high powered laser system represent a first order example of incompatibility. Recent requests for a laser rangefinding capability built into a submarine periscope system have precipitated a new optical design configuration that eliminates most of the inherent problems, making the combination feasible. The evolution of this new design configuration and some of its unique characteristics will be presented.
