The US Marine Corps (USMC) is upgrading the capabilities of its Common Laser Range Finder-Integrated Capability (CLRF-IC) to improve the ability of soldiers to locate adversaries in the field.

The CLRF-IC is a handheld GPS target location system that uses an eye-safe laser range finder and algorithms to determine a target’s location, then transmits location data to fire support systems.

The USMC is now integrating an enhanced digital magnetic capability into the CLRF-IC that will reduce the amount of time and movement required by the user when calibrating the system. The ability to export video or still-pictures from the CLRF-IC to a target handoff system is also being integrated.

The first enhanced CLRF-IC devices are slated to field later this year, with the system expected to reach Full Operational Capability by early 2021.
