In last years, the construction of new generation laser stations has begun. The work of these stations is performed on a single time scale and is based on the simultaneous determination by laser and radio frequency measurements of range and pseudorange. The most important requirement for new generation stations is to increase their productivity. In this paper, we present the results of developing a method for determining suitable windows gap in the cloud for the operation of laser stations. The proposed method allows to solve the problem of increasing the productivity and efficiency of satellite laser ranging (SLR) stations of a new generation. An algorithm for gap in the cloud in daytime conditions is proposed. The proposed algorithm is adaptive and contains settings for speed control. Applied capabilities of the algorithm are tested on experimental data obtained from laser stations of satellite laser ranging.
The problem is solved for the all-day determination of suitable windows for the operation of laser stations based on the proposed method for determining the presence of windows in the cloud field for day and night modes.
