Three separate but precisely-aligned radiation paths are incorporated in the monolithic Laser Rangefinder Telescope Assembly (LRTA) projector head: a high-power IR laser, an IR receiver and a visual reticle projector. The design problems fell mainly into three categories: outgoing laser radiation confinement, alignment accuracy and per unit cost (manufacturability). The reasons for the selection of the optical design, coatings and materials are discussed to illustrate the emergence of a reproducible component from a working prototype.
