Leica GEOSYSTEMS builds one called the "VECTOR" for the Military and others, but the price is off the planet. It can however, directly connect to transmitter/targeting systems for data up-link.

Actually, there is only one “Angle Compensated” Laser Range-finder on the market and that is Leupold’s, and they use the Rifleman Method to obtain the corrected for gravity distance to target. The Rifleman method is the least accurate method one could use.

Leica no longer manufactures the “Viper” or “Vector’s” as they have come to be known. Now Vectronix of Switzerland builds them.

The Viper’s / Vector’s have electronic inclinometers that display the angle up to 30 degrees.

If you are going to look at Vectors also worth a thought are Newcon LRB 20,000A (cheaper) but I would take Simrad LP10 (modular upgradeable). Don`t think Melios are available to non military.
