Therefore, the spectral features of these two ob jects differ signiﬁcantly, since if we take into account the difference in distances to these ob jects, ∼ 300 pc to the Vela pulsar, and 1.8 kpc to PSR 1706-44 (Taylor & Cordes 1993), PSR 1706-44 has much weaker X-ray emission and much stronger TeV γ -ray emission.

The distance to this ob ject is put in the range 4.2 kpc (kinematics of H I, Caswell et al. 1975) up to 5.9 kpc (dispersion measure, Taylor & Cordes 1993).
