G/VLLD, Vehicle Mounted.
b. Traversing Unit (see figure 1-4B).
The TU provides interface
between the LD/R and the tripod for ground mode operation, or with the
vehicle adapter assembly for vehicle mode operation. It also provides
the azimuth and elevation rotation for the LD/R and generates the azimuth
and elevation electrical data to the LD/R. 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 22.5 (0 to -400 MILS)
c. Tripod (see figure 1-4C).
The tripod provides a stable level
platform for the TU and the LD/R.
The tripod adjusts to accommodate
terrain slopes up to 20. Leveling adjustments on the tripod legs allow
for coarse leveling of the unit. You fine level the G/VLLD by adjusting
the three turnbuckles. The tripod has a mounting flange for attaching
the TU, which secures to the tripod with three swing bolts.
d. Battery (see figure 1-4D). The battery for the G/VLLD provides a
24 volts, direct current (VDC) portable power source for field operation.
The battery (BB 704/U) is a rechargeable nickel-cadmium (NICAD) cell.
You may quickly replace the battery externally to the LD/R and recharge
it in the field using the battery charger PP-7286/U. Store and transport
the battery with the LD/R in the LD/R backpack.
e. LD/R Backpack. The LD/R backpack provides protective cover for
the LD/R with the battery installed. Use the backpack for storage and
for field (short distance) transportation. The LD/R backpack also stores
a lens cleaning kit used to clean the LD/R external optics.
