Laser Target Locator Module (LTLM)
Provides Dismounted Forward Observers, Scouts, Snipers and Platoon Leaders all-weather capability to locate targets accurately and transmit target data.
The Laser Target Locator Modules (LTLM) are handheld or tripod-mounted lightweight laser target locators. They deliver target data to the fire support and maneuver Command, Control, Communications, Computer and Intelligence system (C4I).
The Vector 21 is a Binocular Laser Rangefinder (BLRF) with an embedded digital compass. Soldiers can connect the Vector 21 to the Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver (PLGR) or a Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) to provide target grid coordinates. When used in conjunction with an AN/PVS-14 Monocular Night Vision Device, the Vector 21 provides a limited night capability.
The Mark VII integrates a monocular direct-view optic, an image intensifier, a laser rangefinder, and a digital compass into a day/night target location device. The Mark VII connects to the PLGR or the DAGR to provide grid coordinates to distant targets. The Mark VII provides a limited night capability.
The Mark VIIE is an integrated target locator module with a more powerful 8x day optic. It has an uncooled thermal sight for increased night performance and an embedded GPS receiver for stand-alone targeting operations.
The Target Reconnaissance Infrared Geolocating Rangefinder (TRIGR) is an integrated target locator module with a 7x direct view optic, an improved uncooled thermal sight for significantly increased night performance, a laser rangefinder, digital compass, and embedded GPS receiver for standalone targeting operations. LTLM II is a second-generation Lightweight, Handheld Laser Target Locator with a direct view optic, uncooled thermal camera, eye-safe laser range finder, digital magnetic compass, and an internal SAASM GPS receiver.
