Long-Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System
Mounted Reconnaissance Surveillance and Target Acquisition
The Long-Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System (LRAS3) is a long-range, multi-sensor system for the U.S. Army scout, providing real-time ability to detect, recognize, identify and geo-locate distant targets. It's the premier ground combat reconnaissance and surveillance system on the modern battlefield.
ELRAS3 - 3rd Gen FLIR
The eLRAS3 is the next-generation Long Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System. It meets or exceeds all LRAS3 requirements, with a 55 percent reduction in sensor weight and volume and is fully compatible with all existing LRAS3 platforms.
The TOW Improved Target Acquisition System (ITAS) provides a highly mobile, adverse weather, day or night capability needed by early entry forces to destroy advanced threat armor at greater standoff ranges in the main battle area. The ITAS system increases target detection, acquisition, recognition and engagement ranges. It also fires all versions of the TOW missile from both the M41 ground launcher (dismount mode) and the M1121 high-mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV) platform and provides a growth path for future missiles.
The Commander's Independent Viewer (CIV), for use on the Bradley A3, upgrades the capabilities of the U.S. Army's Bradley fighting vehicle. It provides a 360-degree panoramic view of the battlefield to enhance situational awareness and weapon effectiveness.
Increased situational awareness, force effectiveness and more accurate target engagements are made possible through the horizontal technology integration (HTI) of the second-generation forward looking infrared (SGFLIR) standard advanced dewar assembly (SADA) II technology. With improved detection ranges over earlier systems, HTI permits earlier engagements at greater standoff ranges (compared to first generation systems) and, therefore offers greater crew confidence and increased system lethality.
