Paper Abstract

Much effort has been expended in attempting to retrofit existing fire control systems to accomodate laser rangefinders and designators. Current solutions generally require major structural changes and substantial reengineering of fire control optics, all at significant cost. The present solution provides a retrofit structure for a helicopter fire control system, specifically the M-65 optical sight cluster system manufactured by Hughes Aircraft Company, also referred to as the Turret Sight Unit (TSU) . The integration of the laser range finder and designator does not require structural changes to the helicopter turret and its support, and necessitates only minor changes to the fire control optics.
