Teledyne FLIR Defense Introduces StormCaster DX Laser Designator for Small Drones

Laser Designator for Small Drones

Teledyne FLIR Defense introduces the new StormCaster DX payload. This is an advanced multifunctional laser designator, compact and lightweight, designed for the FLIR R80D SkyRaider UAV platform, which can manage the target area with laser spot tracker, and can also be used for the terminal guidance of laser guided munitions. So far, this capability has only been possible with larger Category 4 UAV platforms or ground systems.
