Type 163 Laser Target Designator
The Type 163 Laser Target Designator is a man portable laser designed to provide laser designation for semi-active laser guided weapons.
The battle proven Type 163 laser target designator has been designed specifically to meet all of today’s special and conventional force JTACs and JFOs mission requirements for marking and terminally controlling Semi Active Air to Ground weapons accurately onto the target at ranges up to 10km.
Airborne and Space Systems Division has developed a new generation of athermal lasers providing low divergence and >70mJ per pulse. Full NATO STANAG 3733 capability in a very compact, light weight and low power configuration. In all, establishing a new landmark in size for lasers of this class.
Based on user needs and feedback, Airborne and Space Systems Division has focused on a laser which is simple and easy to operate, yet rugged and reliable. This is consistent with our proven capability in laser designator manufacturing for the military.
