a. Laser Designator/Rangefinder.
The LD/R is the heart of the G/VLLD,
containing the electronics and controls for the system. The LD/R is 17.4" X 10.3"
and 12.9" in height. It weighs 28.9 lbs. and is transported in the LD/R backpack.
It has a field of view of 3-4 degrees and a visual magnification power of 13X. The
ranging capabilities of the G/VLLD are classified.
The LD/R mounts on the
traversing unit. Three swing bolts hold it in place.
The LD/R also has the following features:
(1) The reticle pattern and
data display are both visible through the
(2) A safety laser filter in the eyepiece optics protects the operator from
(4) A built-in-test to provide continuous monitoring of the battery, laser
energy, temperature, and display test.
b. Traversing Unit (TU). The TU provides interface between the LD/R and
tripod for ground mode operation, or, with the vehicle adapter assembly,
vehicle mode operations. It also provides the azimuth and elevation rotation
the LD/R and generates the azimuth and elevation electrical data to the LD/R.
TU has the following physical dimensions:
The TU is transported in the tripod/TU backpack.
The TU measures the azimuth and
elevation with the following degrees of movement:
360€ (0 to 6399 MILS)
LOS - up 25€ (0 to 444 MILS)
- down 22.50 (0 to -400 MILS)
Additionally, the TU has the following features:
