Vectronix to provide US Army with unique handheld precision targeting systems

Vectronix will provide the handheld precision targeting solutions to support the Handheld Precision Targeting Devices (HHPTD) solicitation awarded on July 3rd, 2012. The HHPTD, sponsored by the U.S. Army Rapid Equipping Force (REF), provides dismounted observers the ability to rapidly locate ground targets with a high degree of accuracy allowing target engagement with precision munitions.

As part of the HHPTD program, Vectronix will also deliver an equal amount of STERNA Precision Target Location Systems. The STERNA system is based on Vectronix’ new and unrestricted capability to acquire and maintain the true north azimuth in all operating conditions, even in magnetically charged or GPS-denied settings. The system, already tested by the U.S. Army, provides an azimuth accuracy far exceeding that achieved by the current systems used by the Military.

“The HHPTD program leverages Vectronix core competencies in optics, laser ranging and orientation,” said Larry DeRoche, Sr. Director of Sales at Vectronix Inc. “We are pleased to work with the U.S. Army to provide the best field proven technology to the U.S. warfighter.”

The systems acquired will significantly enhance the intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities of the dismounted soldiers, while reducing system size and weight as well as the need for power.
The deliveries of these systems are scheduled for early next year.
