What are the applications of laser ranging sensors in the military field


Laser ranging sensors are mostly used in civil industry and road command systems because they can judge the movement status of objects based on the reflected speed of laser light. Especially for objects with small planes, the speed measurement time is faster, and temporary speed measurement can also be performed. Corresponding evidence can also be obtained. However, industry insiders say that this type of sensor also has many applications in the military field. What are the applications of infrared laser ranging sensors in the military field?

What are the applications of laser ranging sensors in the military field

1. Light portable pulse laser rangefinder

Light portable pulse laser ranging sensors include hand-held targets for infantry and artillery reconnaissance, as well as dual purpose target indicators for forward reconnaissance and forward to air control. Systems for these purposes require flexibility, light repetition, small size, battery packs as power sources, high reliability and maintainability, and low cost of a single product. In modern warfare, from a single infantry and artillery independent operation to a joint operation of special forces consisting of infantry, artillery, and the Marine Corps, the weapon system has gradually adopted multi-functional integrated high technology from a single ground gun and antiaircraft gun. Therefore, the waterproof laser ranging sensor module has also developed from a portable and hand-held single ranging function to a day and night observation instrument for laser ranging and infrared targeting, as well as a laser infrared target indicator for laser ranging, target indication, and infrared targeting.

2. Ground Vehicular Pulse Laser Ranging Instrument

Ground mounted pulsed laser rangefinders include tanks, infantry combat vehicles, fire control, air defense, artillery or missile guided fire control, and the currently developed ground mounted laser rangefinders target indicators. The technical performance of the equipment made of laser ranging sensors is large range, high ranging accuracy, and large target resolution. The application of optical rangefinders in tank fire control systems is to provide superelevation correction information for ballistic trajectory, azimuth correction information caused by upwind or target movement, and distance information. The infantry combat vehicle mainly uses laser ranging sensors to measure whether the target is within the range of an anti-tank missile, and is used for gun fire control and target sorting.

In addition to the above two types of equipment, which mainly rely on laser ranging sensors to complete their work, some military ground command systems, defense systems, etc. also have sensors involved. They often cooperate with other optical systems and other physical sensors to achieve a certain purpose. Therefore, laser ranging sensors have strong applicability and obvious physical characteristics, which can be used to develop a variety of practical systems.
