Hi,

What would be best technology (GPS,IR,Radio/freq,ultrasonic etc) for
doing distance measurements upto 10km with accuracy of 1 meter?

Surveying grade GPS code based instruments can provide sufficient
accuracy at the cost of more time (and money) than the shirt pocket
GPS receivers take. If you are only interested in distance and not
position you can use real time kinematic (RTK) GPS instruments that
process relative positions based on GPS carrier phases instead of
codes. See:
