Laser range finders for US marines

Elbit Systems : 23 March, 2015  (Application Story)
Elbit Systems will supply the USMC with laser range finders for use in degraded weather conditions under new contract
Laser range finders for US marines

The United States Marine Corps has awarded a subsidiary of Elbit Systems of America a $73.4 million Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract for the Common Laser Range Finder-Integrated Capability (CLRF-IC). Work will be performed in Merrimack, New Hampshire. The period of the IDIQ contract extends through until March 2020. To date, Elbit Systems of America has received an initial order in the amount of $7.5 million under the IDIQ contract.

“We are pleased to provide the USMC with their new rugged CLRF-IC, a lightweight system that is mission-ready and safer for the foot-mobile marine,” commented Raanan Horowitz, President and Chief Executive Officer of Elbit Systems of America. “Using the innovative capabilities of our imaging, range finding and degraded environment navigation devices, marines are now able to acquire targets without breaking cover from their concealed fighting positions and minimise impact while on the move.”

The CLRF-IC replaces the marine’s currently fielded equipment with a system that provides 24-hour observation capability; accurate range to targets; the ability to confirm spot on target with laser designation systems and accurate target location in a variety of conditions, including magnetically disturbed environments, areas with overhead clutter, and in GPS-denied situations. The CLRF-IC’s highly reliable performance and minimal life cycle cost give soldiers a more affordable mission capability.
