Lidar (an acronym for Laser Imaging Detection And Ranging) was a sensor technology normally used primarily for the fire control of starships.

In a method closely related to radar, it measured distances and speeds by sending out laser beams and measuring the time until the reflected beam returned. Although the speed of light limited its practical use to about one million kilometers, lidar was a common fire control system for the energy weapons of warships. (HH8)
