Abstract : Six helium-neon laser boresights at US Air Force bases in the continental United States were surveyed to determine their output power. The study indicated the measured output power of these devices to be significantly below their rated output power of 1.3 mw. The measured output power ranged from 0.97 to 0.14 mw. The laser boresights surveyed do not constitute eye hazards as defined in AFM 161-8 (C1), 27 September 1971. (Author)
