Abstract
Maximum range is a main tactical and technical index for designing manufacturing and accepting a pulsed laser rangefinder. For direct determination of the maximum range, the climate condition and target characteristics such as visibility grade or meteorological visual distance, size and reflectivity of the simulative target and its setting distance should all be known concretely in advance. If the weather is not permitted, for instance the meteorological visual distance is less than the required maximum range, or the simulative target is fairly large and distant, that may be limited by the surrounding topogrophic condition, the direct determination of the maximum range becomes very difficult or even impossible. At present, for determining the maximum range of a laser rangefinder, extinction test is the most effective and optimum method.
