- The company has delivered more than 17,000 STORM precision targeting systems in 15 years
MELBOURNE, Fla., Mar. 16, 2020 — L3Harris Technologies (NYSE:LHX) delivered the 3,000th STORM-SLX precision rangefinder to the U.S. Army earlier this year. The Small Tactical Optical Rifle-Mounted laser rangefinder system with extended performance over it’s predecessor the STORM-PI, is the smallest U.S. Army qualified weapon-mounted laser rangefinder available to the dismounted soldier and is part of the L3Harris STORM family of precision targeting systems. The STORM family continues to be the only U.S. Army qualified laser rangefinders available for the dismounted soldier.
“Our STORM portfolio has supported the U.S. Army for more than 15 years, enabling the dismounted soldier to locate and engage targets with much greater accuracy, significantly improving overall mission effectiveness,” said Lynn Bollengier, President, Integrated Vision Solutions, L3Harris. “We are proud of the advantage our STORM family of precision targeting systems delivers to our soldiers and we continue to invest in next-generation technologies, like our STORM 2 rangefinder, to further increase that advantage.”
Our STORM 2 rangefinder will provide soldiers with enhanced performance at extended ranges during field maneuvers, surveillance and engagement, while enabling them to remain undetected during dismounted and vehicle-mounted missions. L3Harris received a seven-year, $215 million contract from the U.S. Army for STORM 2 in 2019.
