Vectronix Laser Technology for Accurate Range Finding and Location of Distant Targets

Category: Defence Industry

In December 2007 Vectronix AG received an order from the UK Ministry of Defence to deliver 580 PLRF15C Pocket Laser Range Finders as part of the British Sniper System Improvement (SSI) Programme.

The contract includes user and service training. Deliveries are scheduled to start in February 2008 with completion expected at the end of 2008.

The Vectronix PLRF15C measures distances to terrain features and objects from a minimum of five meters up to three kilometers. Its 1550 nm laser is class 1 eyesafe according to IEC 60825-1 and consumes very little energy. The PLRF15C incorporates a compass for azimuth and elevation measurement. It is easy to operate, extremely compact in size, waterproof, and functions reliably in harsh environments. Environmental conditions are tested to MIL-STD-810F.
