As the warfighter is increasingly using more highly integrated instruments, e.g. a laser rangefinder (LRF) combined with a laser designator and an imager, the need to decrease the size of these components becomes more important.Compact small munition applications of rangefinders particularly place an emphasis on size of the optical front end.In order to make the transceiver more compact, special attention needs to be paid to the PCB design in order to shield the receiver from the Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) generated by the short pulses from the laser pulse circuit.Based on our Phase I results, we plan to design and build a compact optical transceiver with minimal cross interference.In Phase II, we will integrate the transceiver into several systems to demonstrate its extended range and small size.
