This lesson is an introduction to the target designator set, electro-optical
AN/TVQ-2, ground/vehicular laser locator designator (G/VLLD).
The G/VLLD set
operates in the field to determine the position of an enemy target and/or to
illuminate a target for destruction by laser-seeking ordnance. When used with the
AN/TAS-4 or AN/TAS-4B night sight, the G/VLLD can operate with 24-hour
effectiveness. The G/VLLD is a category C laser designator with the capability to
operate as a category A or B designator.
Figure 1-1 lists warnings and safety
disciplines required for safe operation of laser generating devices.
PART A - IDENTIFICATION AND
PURPOSE OF MAJOR UNITS OF THE G/VLLD
The G/VLLD set provides accurate target location data to support conventional
ordnance delivery and designates targets for laser-seeking ordnance.
locates target coordinates by measuring distance, elevation, and azimuth to aim-
point with respect to the G/VLLD for remote non-laser-seeking ordnance, and
designates stationary or moving targets for laser-seeking ordnance.
