FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Elbit Systems of America was recently awarded a contract by Raytheon to deliver the Two Color Laser System (TCLS) for the Multi-Spectral Targeting System. The contract will be performed in 2019. TCLS is a production component within the electro-optical surveillance system for multiple military airborne platforms, including unmanned aerial vehicles.
"The Two Color Laser System provides increased targeting accuracy and flexibility, minimizing the potential for collateral damage. These attributes are key to U.S. warfighters who depend on these systems for a successful mission," said Raanan Horowitz, president and chief executive officer of Elbit Systems of America.
Elbit Systems of America has more than a decade of experience producing diode-pumped laser designators and range finders. TCLS is the next generation of this technology, with reduced size, weight and power requirements.
