8 February 1985 Beam Profile Measurements For Target Designators

I.A review of automated systems for far field measurements There have been several efforts at Hughes Aircraft Company to improve on the tedious, slow manual methods of measuring pulsed lasers for rangefinders particularly beam divergence which is done by varying aperture sizes and positions in the laser beam path. The manual method of measuring divergence is somewhat easier to perform if the shot to shot laser energy and wander changes are minimized using a ratiometer. Three instruments have been developed and are being used. They are referred to by the acronyms ALIMS, LIPS, and ALTS.
