Laser Aided Recovery System (LARS)

LARS

Laser Aided Recovery System (LARS) allows for operational range capability up to 100 kilometers and is day/night, all-weather compatible in the most challenging, visually degraded environments. The system is completely RF independent allowing use on LPI/LPD/EMCON missions within GPS-denied environments.
