In the design of military optical systems there frequently exists conflicts among requirements for high performance or precision, size and weight, and the ability to withstand harsh environments. The AN/GVS-5 Hand Held Laser Rangefinder developed for the U.S. Army is a good example of such a system comprising precise alignment of three optical axes in a five pound, field deployed equipment. Final success of the program was the result of innovative design, careful material selection, and attention to detail in manufacture and process control.
