The LAS 1000 detects snipers and other forward observers before they fi re a shot. This system is idealfor border and perimeter security as well as VIP protection details.
While most sniper detection systems are acoustic and help operators respond to a threat after it has already inflicted damage on the unit, the LAS 1000 functions on optical principles and can therefore pinpoint the location of a threat before it has a chance to act.
Utilizing an eye-safe laser scanner, the LAS 1000 detects lenses and reflectors in its line of site even if these objects are covered behind bushes, windows or windshields. The detector can be handheld or mounted on a tripod and when an optical reflector of any kind is detected, its position is marked with a red dot visible through the eyepiece. For added situational awareness, an audio signal can also be set to automatically activate.
Once revealed, the detected threat’s distance range vector is displayed and can be verbally dictated to the operator. Equipped with an IR as well as a green laser illuminator, the LAS 1000 can reliably detect snipers and other optical equipment in a variety of tactical situations.
The LAS 1000 now has in-built GPS to determine the precise coordinates of detected threats.
