DSIAC Webinar: "Compact Laser Designators for Mini-UAVs and Handheld Targeting Systems"
Laser designators served as a fundamental means of targeting for multiple generations of combat aircraft. With advancements in high-efficiency, diode-pumped laser technology, pulse length control, efficient thermal design, and unique beam stability techniques, laser designators that can fit into mini UAVs or handheld targeting binoculars are becoming a reality. Laser designators weighing less than 1 lb can execute tactical target designation missions at ranges up to 2 km from key platforms like the Puma, Coyote, and Hero-30 or as part of soldier-borne equipment. This could add significant capability to ground forces engaged in short-range tactical missions, enabling effective target marking for platforms equipped with laser-guided munitions.
