BAE Systems receives US Army TRIGR laser award

11th January 2013 - 10:54 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems will supply the US Army with additional TRIGR laser target locator modules under a new $7 million contract. The firm-fixed-price contract, issued by the US Army Contracting Command, was announced on 8 January.

According to BAE Systems, this award will provide for the modification of an existing contract to procure the units, which help soldiers in the field determine target coordinates quickly and effectively.

TRIGR laser target locator modules help soldiers determine target coordinates quickly and accurately in the battlefield. The system weighs less than 5.5 pounds and provides mission-critical capability in a single, lightweight package, combining functions of several pieces of equipment carried by the soldiers. Removing weight from soliders’ packs ‘makes their jobs easier, enabling them to complete their missions day or night, even in poor visibility conditions, faster and with greater precision’, the company said.

Work under the contract is expected to be complete by 17 February 2014.
