Close Quarter Battle Laser Training System

LACS (Laser Advanced Combat System) is a close quarter battle training system dedicated to the operators from law enforcement and the military sector.

Product Description

LACS (Laser Advanced Combat System) is a close quarter battle training system dedicated to the operators from law enforcement and the military sector. The system can be used in combination with real or simulation weapons and is ideal for force on force CQB/CQC training and for target aiming (static, dynamic or reactive). LACS allows both the operators and trainers to improve their shooting capabilities.

Why would you start using LACS? 

  1. Versatility – Fast mounting and configuration; use it any time and everywhere – there is no absolute need for dedicated training areas, use it even in the corridors of your barracks (to train more often) as well as in the dedicated locations in which operators need to train; like airports, stations, other public places.
  2. Cost-efficiency – Train more frequent without having to arrange dedicated training areas using the simulation weapon systems.

What can you do with LACS?

  • Shooting Range, shooting house tactical training
    Responsive tactical target training, dynamic tactical target training, first level static target training, use of explosives, grenades, flash bangs and simulative training devices.

LACS components

TOC (Tactical Operation Center) is a software platform used to configure the mission profiles, the simulation kits and to analyze the training sessions. Before starting every training session, the analyst or instructor plans and configures goals, teams, operators and firearm settings. The TOC sends the training configurations to the Body Central Processor Unit (B-CPU) by simultaneous wireless connections. At the end of each training session, the TOC receives and integrates the data from the B-CPU, including the video cameras positioned in the area of operation and on each operator, as well as the GPS-data of each operator. The collected data is used to prepare the analysis, to evaluate the behavior of the operators, the effectiveness of the operators skills and the operators improvement. The data allows the instructor to analyse the improvement of each operators use of the weapons, reaction time, precision, and teamwork during the training scenario.

LACS HG1

HG1, equipped with an infra red class 1 precision laser emitter with a variable beam dimension. It’s made to be used on any type of handgun, simulation or real (blank ammunition) equipped with a picatinny rail. The HG1 allows the possibility to execute force-on-force training in CQB/CQC (Close Quarters Battle/Combat); static, dynamic and reactive target training, simulating the ballistic characteristics of the weapons in use. The adjustable dimensions of the laser beam allow the operator to obtain maximum results of engagement up to 164 feet / 50 meter. The laser beam class 1 emits the moment the trigger is pulled without delay. It allows single zone hits and analysis in the TOC (Tactical Operation Center). LACS HG1 can be used in any weather conditions.

These characteristics, in addition to the flexibility of use allow the operators to execute the force-on-force training in CQB/CQC in a completely safe way (for people, animals, objects and buildings) and with total respect to DOE-STD-1091-96 February 1996 – DOE STANDARD FIREARMS SAFETY. Additionally it’s particularly useful for the most innovative force-on-force training techniques: hostage, convoy protection, VIP protection; and in static, dynamic and reactive target training.

LACS R2

LACS R2, equipped with a precision infra red laser class 1 double emitter with a variable beam dimension, it is made to be used on any type of rifle, simulation or real (blank ammunition) equipped with a picatinny rail. The R2 allows the possibility to execute force-on-force training in CQB/CQC and static, dynamic and reactive target training, simulating the ballistic characteristics of the firearms in use.
The adjustable dimensions of the laser beam allow the operator to obtain the maximum results of engagement up to 656 feet / 200 meter. The double emission system allows the operator to have the most realistic experience in both CQB/CQC scenarios or distances between 98 feet / 30 meter to 656 feet / 200 meter. The R2, available in a long range version to shoot up to 656 feet / 200 meter, allows the trainer to create a specific training scenario with sniper operators support. The laser beam in class 1, emits the moment the trigger is pulled without delay.
It allows single zone hits to be analyzed in the TOC (Tactical Operation Center). LACS R2 can be used in any weather conditions. These characteristics, in addition to the flexibility of use allow the operators to execute the force-on-force training in CQB/CQC in a completely safe manner (for people, animals, objects and buildings) and with total respect to DOE-STD-1091-96 February 1996 – DOE STANDARD FIREARMS SAFETY.

LACS Sensors

Each LACS sensor is provided with a dedicated micro-processor that is the core of the receiving system and hit analysis. It may be positioned on the body of the operator or on the targets to reach the maximum realism in training. Distributed on the entire body (including arms, legs, chest and head) in variable quantities, from between 16 and 32 sensors, with different density in different areas of the body, the sensors are identified related to their position. It’s also possible to locate the exact body surface area hit and the type of damage inflicted based on the specific ballistic protection (virtual) in use and based on the type of projectile (virtual) fired. All this information is received from the micro-processor and sent to the LACS B-CPU (Body Central Processor Unit) connected by wire to each sensor. Sensors have a receiving angle of beam that, based on the weather conditions and the distances, can change from 15° to 180°. The sensors are made of shock absorbent techno polymer which is able to resist high and low temperatures. During the production cycle the sensors are exposed to different protective layers that make them resistant to dust and water. They are water resistant and may be protected by an additional interchangeable protection shell that grants superior shock absorbent characteristics.

LACS B-PCU

LACS B-CPU (Body Central Processor Unit) manages and coordinates the wireless laser emitters and the wired sensors. It’s equipped with wireless communication devices that allow communication with the TOC (Tactical Operation Center) and interacts with the operator with audio/video/tactile signals. LACS B-CPU receives the sessions configuration data relative to the training from the TOC and during the simulation registers all the data, for example: number of shots, sensors hit(s), magazine reload, etc. Thanks to the wireless connection it can download and upload the data with video cameras, mobile devices and remote networks.
At the end of the training session, all data can be sent to the TOC to prepare the debriefing and evaluation. With the multi channel wireless module, it is possible to use LACS in the USA or in EUROPE.

LACS Target

LACS Targets are a fundamental element to complete the training scenarios. Equipped with multiple sensors they are available in three different types.

– Static Target, when it is hit, the target emits a sound and illuminates the hit area.
– Dynamic target, in addition to the sound and light the dynamic target falls and resets to its original position at different intervals. In this way the operator trains in scanning and controlling.
– Reactive target, equipped with all of the characteristics of the Dynamic Targets, this target can also be programmed to hit the operator as soon as he enters the target zone.
