Abstract : Apparatus is described for instantaneously measuring the horizontal and vertical aspect angles of radiation received from a remote laser transmitter. A triangular corner reflector serves as the receiver of radiation and detectors are provided along the three edges of the reflector. From the number of detectors activated on each side of the reflector, the direction of radiation from UV to millimeter wave length is determined. (Author)
