The US Marine Corps (USMC) has awarded a contract to Elbit Systems' US subsidiary for the delivery of Common Laser Range Finder-Integrated Capability (CLRF-IC).

 

The $73.4m indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has a performance period that runs up to 2020 and the initial order under the IDIQ award amounts to $7.5m.

 

Work under the contract will be carried out by the company in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

 

Commenting on the contract, Elbit Systems of America president and chief executive officer Raanan Horowitz said: "We are pleased to provide the USMC with their new rugged CLRF-IC, a lightweight system that is mission-ready and safer for the foot-mobile Marine.

 

"Leveraging the innovative capabilities of our imaging, range finding, and degraded environment navigation solutions, Marines are now able to acquire targets without breaking cover from their concealed fighting positions and minimise impact while on the move."

 

Set to replace the USMC's currently fielded equipment, Elbit's CLRF-IC is a lightweight targeting device that is designed to incorporate day and night imaging and high accuracy laser based range finding.

 

The system provides 24-hour observation capability, accurate range to targets, the ability to confirm spot on target with laser designation systems, and accurate target location in a variety of conditions, including magnetically disturbed environments, areas with overhead clutter, and in GPS-denied situations.

 

The CLRF-IC is said to offer a more affordable mission capability due to its highly reliable performance and minimal lifecycle cost.
