The current state of the art and immediate future of CO2 rangers is seen in the context of Nd:YAG laser history : first generation - establishing the technology/separate apertures, second generation - development and applications/the transceiver configuration, third generation - integration, maturity and production. A CO2 ranger product range and outline parameters are indicated and the technology summarised. Advantages and disadvantages, current and projected, and the rangefinding performances are compared with the Nd:YAG baseline. Likely applications are indicated, stand-alone and integrated, and requirements and methods of optical integration are shown in principle.
