Ml-series lank, Bradley, Paladin, LRAS3
and DSESTS' SLV software are slated to become compatible with Windows 7 OS by March 2014 and Stryker by March 2015.
The Long-Range Advance Scout Surveillance System (LRAS3
) is a long-range multisensor system for the U.S.
Also in the works in Bowman's shop is the 3rd generation LRAS3
, to be tested in 2006.
DRS-produced HTI components are also used in LRAS3
for scout vehicles.
The Reconnaissance Troops provide conventional ground reconnaissance enhanced with LRAS3
sensors and organic mortars for self-protection.
consists of an SGF with long-range optics, an eye-safe laser rangefinder, a day video camera, and a global positioning system (GPS) with altitude determination.
An additional HTI SGF application is the man-portable LRAS3
. After FY04, the LRAS3
is also getting a Laser Designation Module (LDM) upgrade, which will also see service on the Stryker Fire Support Vehicle and the M707 Knight.
DRS Technology has received a contract to provide Long Range Advance Scout Surveillance Systems (LRAS3
) for the US Army's High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles.
You need the electronic equipment installation kit that comes with NSN 589-01567-0814 to mount the LRAS3
on the M1114 and M1151A1.
The current standard-issue forcible entry mounted platoon vehicle platform (the M1151/M1167 variant HMMWV) in the reconnaissance squadron is incompatible with the Long-Range Advance Scout Surveillance System (LRAS3
) and the Improved Target Acquisition System (1TAS).
However, vehicles such as the Canadian Army Coyote equipped with its full suite of sensors (including a radar), the German and Dutch Fennek, the Humvee equipped with Raytheon's Lras3
, and many others, were specifically conceived for recce/surveillance roles.
Another technology the 3rd ID will take to Iraq is the long-range advanced scout surveillance system, or LRAS3
