FIG. 2.

Space-time diagram of active laser ranging with two asynchronous terminals.

FIG. 3.

Block diagram of the active laser ranging terminals used in the laboratory experiments.

FIG. 4.

Results from the laboratory experiment shown in Fig. 3 . (a) The estimated range between terminals versus the change in actual range caused by moving translating stages. The experimental results are indicated by filled red circles. The black curve is a line with a slope of one and an offset chosen to minimize deviation from the data. (b) The deviation of the measurements in (a) from the line. The experimental results are indicated by blue diamonds. Each data point represents 1000 sample measurements.
