LIOD is a sensor system for automatic, optronic tracking of air, surface targets and against asymmetric tactics such as piracy and insurgency.
The basic sensor set consists of TV and IR cameras in combination with an eye-safe laser range-finder.
LIOD has been designed to operate either as an autonomous weapon control system or as an auxiliary sensor, integrated in a larger system. The ever-increasing effectiveness of present-day electronic warfare systems creates a great need for passive sensors, which are difficult to detect and completely insensitive to ECM.
Because LIOD is capable of meeting all these requirements, it is the most efficient and proven answer to this need. The tracking unit performs gated tracking, which reduces background clutter in the angle-tracking channel. This makes LIOD a very versatile sensor for a weapon control system.
For upgrade and ship-life-extension-programs (SLEP), the system can be adapted with State-of-the-art camera's.
