Laser rangefinder to be mounted on a hand-held pointing device


Equipped with a single lens and an optical splitter and able to calculate target distance

In order to contain the bulk of the laser rangefinder below an acceptable limit to allow it to be mounted on a handheld pointing device, it has been thought to simplify the rangefinder's optical unit by eliminating one of the two lenses, using the remaining lens for both the emission and the reception of pulses and adding an optical prism to deviate the pulse emitted by the emitter stage to the lens and to route the pulse received from the same lens to the optoelectronic receiver device.
