Abstract : The SVV-1m optical rangefinder was tested in the Antarctic, using both ordinary and laser light sources. It was discovered that normal operating conditions can be provided for this optical rangefinder at low temperatures either by heating individual units of the instrument, or by making measurements from a specially constructed room mounted on a roof of a motor vehicle. This allows series produced rangefinders to be used without additional heating or modification. (Author)
