Abstract
Optical effects restricting the limiting accuracy of the laser ranging of the satellites analyzed. The most important are the disperse blur of ultrashort pulses in the atmosphere and the effect of the transverse group delay. These effects cause the limitation of the distance measurement accuracy ( per one shot ) by 1 - 5 millimeters depending of the orbit high. Accuracy of two-frequency ranging method is also discussed. It is show that the attainable limiting accuracy is about several millimeters even for the low orbit satellites.
