Just a wild thought here....:)

What if multiple lasers were used?...

Looking from the top, located at the N&S...and the E&W perimeters of the rocket stage.....

Aiming just very slightly away from the flight path of the rocket....

The N/S differential would give info on the N/S "drift" and the E/W would give info on the E/W "drift".....

2 coordinates....

Combining all 4 differentials maybe could provide altitude info for the final coordinate....

Along with a few 100,000 lines of code.....:)

In a strange way, somewhat similar to an Adcock radio direction finding antenna array....
