The authors of this paper will discuss the project known as TeVnet. TeVnet is a combined horizontal and vertical survey network that was developed to provide spatial control for the three key machines of the Fermilab accelerator complex – Tevatron, Main Injector, and Anti-Proton source. This paper focuses on the survey network design, observation, and analysis, of an effort with the objective of increased performance and reliability of the accelerator complex by ensuring spatially correct…

Implementation of two telemeter designs for high accuracy laser ranging of kilometer scale distances in space
We present two different laser ranging systems under development, both based on the use of a high frequency modulated beam. The first range meter makes no use of interferometry: only the phase of the
Développement de télémètres laser de haute exactitude et de haute résolution pour applications spatiales
Si les performances des instruments d'exploration de l'Univers continuent de s'ameliorer, c'est souvent au prix d'une augmentation de leurs dimensions. Pour le developpement de nouveaux telescopes
