Raytheon has combined a high-energy laser with a variant of its Multi-spectral Targeting System – a sophisticated package of electro-optical and infrared sensors – and installed it on a Polaris MRZR, a small, all-terrain vehicle. This makes the system particularly suited to expeditionary missions, the company says. The system is standalone, with a footprint of roughly 30 square feet. On a single charge from a standard 220v outlet, the HEL system on board the MRZR delivers four hours of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capability and 20 to 30 laser shots. The system can also be coupled with a generator to provide virtually infinite magazine depth. The weaponised MTS sensor package that is the core of the system. In this configuration, the MTS provides its standard setting ISR and tracking capabilities while also serving as a beam director.
