Boresighting

BORESIGHTING

PLX’s Boresighting Verification Technology dramatically enhances targeting capabilities. The technology utilizes PLX’s proprietary, high accuracy beam-delivery system. This updated capability enables you to verify the alignment of your hardware’s optical axis and your aiming devise with sub-arc second accuracy.

PLX’s Boresighting systems operate with extreme stability, even under the harshest levels of vibration and shock, such as helicopter flight and battlefield conditions.

In a typical military Boresighting application, you have a laser target designator, one line of sight day time camera for daytime viewing, and a line of sight for an infrared camera for nighttime imaging.

Whatever your Boresighting requirements are, PLX can adapt its technology to meet your new equipment or upgrade needs.

Modernized Boresight Module (M-BSM)

Modernized Boresight Module™

The Modernized Boresight Module, designed by Lockheed Martin and manufactured by PLX, allows simultaneous viewing of multiple lines of sight. The module uses two LTHRs configured in a stable housing that provides up to one arc second parallelism under the most adverse conditions. The unit can be customized to fit any application.

Boresighting Components

The Lateral Transfer Hollow Retroreflector™ (LTHR)

The Lateral Transfer Hollow Retroreflector™

The PLX Lateral Transfer Hollow Retroreflector™ (LTHR) is an innovative retroreflector tube that is basically a segment of a large hollow retroreflector. It is perfect for folding parallel light 180° and displacing it any given distance while maintaining perfect parallelism between the incoming and outgoing beams, even while the system is vibrating. To achieve boresighting, place the LTHR at the center of one line of sight in a manner such that the viewer observes the center of the second line of sight.

The Lateral Transfer Hollow Periscope™ (LTHP)

The Lateral Transfer Hollow Periscope™

The PLX Lateral Transfer Hollow Periscope™ (LTHP) enables a transfer of a parallel beam to any given distance while maintaining perfect parallelism between the incoming and outgoing beams, even while the system is vibrating. In many applications, a LTHP may be used for boresighting.

Rotary Movement Device™ (RMD)

Rotary Movement Device™

Use the PLX Rotary Movement Device™ (RMD) to attach two or more instruments at their respective entrance and exit apertures. The RMD enables a connection between any desirable combinations of LTHRs and LTHPs.

Hollow Roof Mirrors™ (HRM)

Hollow Roof Mirrors™

PLX Hollow Roof Mirrors™ (HRMs) are ideal for redirecting light in one coordinate. The HRM is an orthogonal assembly of two plane mirrors attached to each other along one "roof edge." They can be used in almost every application where a "roof top" or porro prism can be used.

All products can be modified to operate under unique and severe environmental conditions.
