Saab Defense of Sweden unveils the HEIMDALL laser rangefinder that incorporates diode-pumped erbium technology, which facilitates its use on remote weapons stations, unmanned aerial vehicles, border surveillance systems, airport landing strips and on fire control systems.

The HEIMDALL is a compact, light-weight device that can be used in several applications, says Stellan Wickstrom, Saab electronic defense systems product manager. "The diode-pumped technology allows the laser to achieve an impressive performance with a continuous operation in a harsh environment,” he said.

The device has a newly developed receiver that provides the laser receiver with high sensitivity, but is eye safe, Wickstrom said. "It is currently a problem for many laser users to use such devices in public areas without restriction and still have top performance," he said. "The laser rangefinder HEIMDALL will solve both issues."
