Israel-based international defence electronics company Elbit Systems is set to launch its new Long View CR-D (LVCR-D) system at the upcoming Eurosatory 2014 exhibition to be held in Paris from 16-20 June 2014.

The latest LVCR-D is built on the combat-proven LVCR technology, which is a highly advanced and cost-effective system.

The LVCR technology has the ability to acquire long-range targets or to observe small targets such as enemy fighters in high spatial resolution under extremely difficult visual conditions during day or night.

The system combines a very long-range continuous optical zoom FLIR, long-range day cameras, integral eye-safe laser range finder, GPS, magnetic compass and a built-in target data management, and all-in-one compact configuration.

It also minimises collateral damage and provides optimal guidance of munitions with perfect coverage of laser-spot on the target.

Additionally, it automatically detects laser beam spillover and provides a correction mechanism to prevent laser-spot spillover from the target for both short and long ranges.

The LVCR-D system, which is suitable for both fixed and dismounted applications, will enhance the company's portfolio of high-quality target acquisition and observation systems.

The new system will be displayed at the company's exhibition booth (E737) in the Israeli Pavilion (Hall 6) at Eurosatory 2014.
