REHOVOT, Israel, 15 July 2010. Elop Ltd.in Rehovot, Israel, is introducing the Rattler A miniature, coded laser target designator for micro-payloads and small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The UAV laser designator performance in harsh environments and provides designation for all laser-guided munitions.
The Rattler A laser designator fits in aircraft payloads as small as five inches in diameter, and provides small observation payloads on manned and unmanned aircraft with targeting capabilities by enabling laser designation and coded laser illumination. Its diode-pumped technology and a-thermal design come in single- or multiple-LRU configurations.
