    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Northrop Grumman Corp. has received a $17.6 million award from the U.S. Army to upgrade the Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder 2H (LLDR 2H), which will be retrofitted with high-accuracy sensors.

    The modernization of the LLDR 2H man-portable targeting system features Northrop Grumman’s thermal diode pumping technology for designation, which consumes less power than older lasers while yielding greater output energy and lower beam divergence.

    The LLDR 2H hybrid sensor solution fuses data from a digital magnetic compass and celestial navigation sensors to provide high-accuracy target location and long-range imaging to allow warfighters greater leverage to shape the field of engagement. Interconnectivity within the…
