Navy chooses laser designators from B.E. Meyers for boat crews
U.S. Navy surface warfare spe- cialists needed laser designators with infrared illumination capa-bility to enable Navy Special Operations boat teams to illu-minate targets in low-light conditions.
U.S. Navy surface warfare spe- cialists needed laser designators with infrared illumination capa-bility to enable Navy Special Operations boat teams to illu-minate targets in low-light conditions. They found their solution at B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. in Redmond, Wash.
Officials of the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division in Crane, Ind., announced their intention to negotiate a sole-source contract with B.E. Meyers for 15 of the company's DIAL-100G aiming laser.
The B.E. Meyers DIAL-100G (AN/PEQ-11A) is a high-power, multifunction aiming laser that combines an infrared pointer and illuminator and visible green laser.
The DIAL-100G (SKU: 432P) was designed for the crew-served weapons of Navy special operations boat teams to provide day and night target marking with infrared laser-in-laser technology, B.E. Meyers officials say.
These devices help Navy Special Operations sailors operate machine guns and other crew-served weapons in darkness and other low-light conditions.
The DIAL-100G provides illumination for infrared night-vision goggles and other infrared sensors, as well as a green laser dot to help aim weapons.
The DIAL-100G laser target designator and infrared illuminator weighs 13.5 ounces, measures 3.75 by 1.2 by 3 inches, and can illuminate targets with its green laser as far away as 1.5 miles. Its infrared illuminator can light-up targets as far away as three miles and provides a 55-degree field of view.
