POINTER™ is a proprietary system that provides the link between distributed ISTAR assets, commanders and those who deliver weapon effects.
Taking live feeds from any sensor that can provide a point of interest (POI) or track, POINTER plots these on a battlefield management application in the command centre or vehicle. It then either automatically or with command input transmits this information directly to the POINTER viewer on or near the crew-served weapon of those soldiers who will respond.
Our POINTER™ Vehicle variant is specifically designed to be mounted on a vehicle platform, constantly keeping the gunner on target. The system’s capability includes:
POINTER gives commanders and gunners vital information without distraction, and clarity under pressure. Simple, intuitive and agile to use, the training burden for operators is minimal.
A POINTER system comprises a base-station, a number of weapon-mounted POINTER units, one navigation unit per vehicle and a network. An integrated laser range finder enables the operator to self-designate targets or points of interest.
