Elbit Further Extends its Portfolio of Long-Range Observation, Target Acquisition and Laser Designation Systems
- Launch of Long View CR-D at Eurosatory 2014
- The new system's features for minimizing collateral damage: optimal guidance of munitions with accurate and valid coverage of laser-spot on the target by automatic detection, and analysis and correction to avoid laser-spot spillover from the target, for both short and long ranges
Elbit Systems announced today the launch of the new, highly advanced Long View CR-D (LVCR-D), to be displayed at Eurosatory 2014 at the Company’s exhibition booth (E737) in the Israeli Pavilion (Hall 6).
The new LVCR-D is based on the combat-proven LVCR, a highly advanced and cost effective system with a unique ability to acquire long-range targets or to observe small targets, such as enemy fighters, in high spatial resolution under severe visual conditions day or night. It combines a very long-range continuous optical zoom FLIR, long-range day cameras, integral eye- safe laser range finder, GPS, magnetic compass and a built-in target data management, all-in-one compact configuration.
Military Electro-Optical / Infrared Systems Market - Forecast to 2020
Adding a diode-pumped laser designator to the legacy LVCR, the upgraded system minimizes the risks of collateral damage. Its unique and innovative features are well suited for optimal guidance of munitions with accurate and valid coverage of laser-spot on the target while incorporating automatic laser beam spillover detection and analysis as well as correction mechanism to avoid laser-spot spillover from the target, for both short and long ranges.
All these capabilities are integrated in a ruggedized system, suitable for fixed or dismounted applications, yielding an advanced system with outstanding tactical capabilities and advantages. Enhancing the Company’s portfolio of high quality target acquisition and observation systems, LVCR-D is considered among the most-advanced long-range targeting acquisition systems available in the market.
