A total of seven papers were presented during the
Arc seconds accuracy adjustment technique for
the split corner cube was presented by J.L. Oneto.
The system calibration capabilities and field
operation results of the Portable Calibration Standard have been
presented by the Prague group,
P. Sperber described the concept and construction
of the novel and compact laser rangefinder for sub-millimeter
ranging up to 100 meter distances.
M. Paunonen presented the new optical scheme for
SLR system calibration setup using the 1 m aperture Riga mount
J. Long and P. Stevens described the local surveys
and its relationship to the system calibration and bias identification
The general trend toward the millimeter ranging accuracy
has dominated the entire session.
The best SLR systems provide millimeter precision,
sub-millimeter stability and millimeter data sets consistency ranging
to ground targets.
