L3Harris Technologies has received the first order on its multi-million dollar contract from the US Army for the Small Tactical Optical Rifle-Mounted Micro Laser Rangefinder 2 (STORM 2). L3Harris will deliver more than 1,100 combat-ready systems to the Army. This is the first production delivery order associated with the US$215 million STORM 2 contract the company announced in 2019.
“STORM 2 represents a next-generation laser technology that enables the soldier to perform laser ranging and target hand-off operations in all battlefield conditions,” said Lynn Bollengier, president, Integrated Vision Solutions, L3Harris. “Our STORM portfolio has been a staple of the US Army’s laser range-finding capabilities for more than 15 years and we are proud to continue delivering combat-ready systems that provide a tactical edge for our soldiers.”
The company’s STORM 2 is the next advancement in rifle-mounted, multifunction laser systems that provide soldiers with heightened performance and enhanced visibility at extended range during field manoeuvres, surveillance and engagement, while remaining undetected during dismounted and vehicle-mounted missions.
