Paper Abstract

The CO, TEA Laser Rangefinder can be utilized for both ranging and information transfer by modulating the tail of the CO2 TEA laser pulse. This multifunctional capability for the CO, laser rangefinder is achieved by pulse code modulation with an electro-optic modulator. A CdTe crystal Pockels Cell used in a double-pass configiration has produced a train of optical pulses 100 nanoseconds wide at 5 MHz repetition rate.
