SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND FEATURES:NVEC's Ground Commander's Pointer is an infrared (IR) pointer and illuminator. The IR light is invisible to the naked eye, but is fully visible tonight vision devices sensitive to 830 nanometers (NM). It is designed to provide clandestine target marking and illumination for combat operations. The WARRIOR DOTtm;(.5mR beam) can be used to mark targets out to several thousand meters. The beam may be adjusted by the user from .5mR to as wide as thirty degrees, faces or man-size targets can be illuminated at more than one-thousand meters. In the floodlight mode, 20 to 30 degrees, vehicle-size targets can be illuminated at several hundred meters.

Ground forces use the WARRIOR DOTtm;with night vision devices to mark targets for close air support (CAS) missions; to mark objectives for coordinated ground attack; or widen the beam to illuminate dark areas for night photography and to look for bad guys hidden in the shadows.

Aviators use the Pointer to identify and coordinate targets, to illuminate the tail numbers of target aircraft, or to illuminate a helicopter landing zone for an unannounced landing.
