Mission Ready Boresighting

The CBU is a compact boresighting tool for multi-sensor payloads. A field-ready device, the CBU provides quick Line of Sight (LOS) verification of day/night and thermal sensors with respect to an on-board Laser Range Finder (LRF), Designator or Pointer.


  • Passive operation:
    The CBU projects a laser induced spot in the
    IR and visible wavelengths. CBU operation is
    completely passive, with no external power required.
  • High accuracy:
    The emitted beams are highly parallel with
    respect to the incoming laser in order to
    achieve high alignment accuracy.
  • Custom design per payload:
    The CBU architecture is sufficiently flexible to
    adapt to a variety of multi-sensor payload.
    The interface is customized to fit each UUT.
  • Designed for field level deployment:
    The CBU is athermalized over a broad
    range of operating temperatures typically 
    encountered in field use.
