Two new capabilities offered by the application of laser rangers to submunitions are (1) range to the target and (2) target height profiles. This additional information enhances submunition performance by improving the probability of detection and reducing false alarms. Laser rangers using new semiconductor laser diodes offer the potential to meet the severe size, weight, and power constraints of advanced submunition concepts. The feasibility of using laser rangers in a submunition application is explored and trade-offs identified.
