Northrop Grumman will upgrade Target Locator Modules (TLMs) under a $17.6 million award from the US Army announced on 9 July.

The TLMs will be retrofitted with high accuracy capability to modernise the Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder 2H (LLDR 2H) man-portable targeting system.

The LLDR 2H hybrid sensor solution fuses data from a digital magnetic compass and celestial navigation sensors to provide fast and high accuracy target location and long-range imaging for high-value targets.

The LLDR 2H system features the company’s thermal diode pumping technology for designation, which consumes less power than older lasers, while yielding greater output energy and lower beam divergence.
