The Pulsed Laser Vulnerability Test System (PLVTS) is the largest pulsed CO2 laser in the U.S. It is designed to support susceptibility and vulnerability testing of electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) tactical weapons systems. Fully transportable and self-contained, PLVTS is capable of providing tactical threat environments at virtually any test range in the world.
- Threat Lasers are agile and eye-safe lasers, that are available for component or system level testing. White Sands Missile Range is in possession of over 50 threat lasers.
- The Advanced Pointed Tracker (APT) is instrumented with a 60-cm diameter optical tracker or beam director. It is mobile with two optical benches that enables dynamic testing.
- The Sea Lite Beam Director (SLBD) is a beam director that can be used as an optical tracker for very high energy lasers. It is instrumented with a 2m diameter optical tracker or beam director. The SLBD is currently in mothball status.
