Follow-on orders valued at approximately $51 million

Carried and operated by Forward Air Controllers and Reconnaissance Marines, the system provides a "bull's eye" for other units to target enemy troops and equipment with munitions specifically designed for laser guidance and high accuracy. During rigorous testing by the USMC, the LTD met the performance requirements for having the required marking range, operational suitability and life cycle support.

One of the characteristics of 21st century conflicts is a heightened sensitivity for avoiding unnecessary damage and loss of life. Tools like the LTD provide the extra measure of precision that ensures accurate targeting and safety for surrounding objects and personnel.
