Abstract : A program to develop a laser rangefinder for improved trajectory determination is in progress. The rangefinder is to record range at a rate of ten times per second and do so with a precision of plus or minus one ft. The improvement to be expected was investigated for representative situations using a mathematical model and computer. An appendix is included giving a derivation of the range equation. (Author)
