The US Army has awarded BAE Systems a contract to provide laser target locators to enable US troops to identify the location of targets in all conditions. The five year, $41.9 million contract is for the production and delivery of the Laser Target Locator Modules.
The LTLM is a light-weight, portable direct viewing optical system that can operate in adverse battlefield conditions at day or night. The system can operate in fog and smoke conditions and uses thermal imaging.
Bruce Zukauskas, product line director of the LTLM at BAE, said “This compact, lightweight targeting system will give our warfighters a distinct advantage on the battlefield. It will enable soldiers to determine target coordinates quickly, safely, and accurately, and make their jobs easier.”
