Fact: Laser warning systems/active protection is becoming common.

Question: should/can we move away from using laser range finders to generate ballistic solutions?

I have some ideas (below).

Seeking thoughts and or a sanity check from #TankTwitter and or #Physics legends.
We know Laser Range Finders work.

They probably also aren’t obsolete yet. But the days of being able to fire the laser without fear of being detected are potentially coming to a close.

So what other options are there?
Passive Radar (pt 1/3)

These systems will *likely* become more common. Ranging is literally part of the ‘radar’ acronym so that part is solved.

BUT. Passive radar needs the target to be transmitting/something else to transmit to enable the passive radar to receive.
