A method is proposed to estimate limiting range of laser vision systems. The method is based on the concept of minimum resolution contrast. It is shown that for every perception level of the object image being observed (detection, recognition, etc.), the range of vision is determined by the intersection point of the curves characterising dependence between the minimum resolution contrast and really observed one. The layout of laser vision system and the results of the model experimental study are presented.
