LEICA SG12 with VECTOR
LEICA SG12 Digital goniometer
As a rugged total station for military survey and orientation tasks, Leica proposes the SG12 fitted with a LEICA MRF2000 Rangefinder.
SG12 with firmly fitted MRF2000 Rangefinder.
Orientation by built-in Digital Magnetic Compass yields 3 mils PE. Orientation by resection or astro menu is usually better than 1 mil.
Numerous customized variants exist, such as
The combination of SG12 and VECTOR IV is a versatile, light weight Observation Post Equipment. It displays range, bearing and elevation, or UTM grid co-ordinates, and can be equipped with multiple data input/output interfaces.

LEICA GLPS Gun Laying and Positioning System
GLPS comprises three fully integrated components: a northfinding gyroscope, an electronic theodolite, and an eyesafe laser rangefinder.
Station coordinates can be determined by survey routines or fed automatically from a GPS receiver.
This fully autonomous system determines orientation to 0.2 mil PE and calculates easting, northing, and altitude to the forward station.
LEICA GLPS provides accurate and timely orientation and fixation

Image intensifier family
The passive Leica night-vision
devices give the user working in darkness reliable information on his environment
and therefore certainty in his actions and decisions. The concept of a family
of devices ensures interchangeability of components. Image intensifier tubes
of the second and third generation can be used but:
3rd generation tubes are subject to export regulations of tube manufacturers country.
The LEICA Image intensifer familyThe image intensifier family is made up of the following products:
BIM25 - Night pocketscope
LEICA BIM35 - Night pocketscope
LEICA BIG25 - Night vision goggles
LEICA BIG35 - Night binoculars

At distances greater than 2km , operators prefer to use a magnetic tripod to steady the instrumentVarious options allow customisation:
Reconnaissance and rapid surveying
Gap measuring devices
Engineers often perform important and tactical reconnaissance surveys.
Typical surveys include gap measurement i.e. horizontal distance and height difference between two points on opposite banks. The Leica VECTOR is purpose-built for such measurement and can provide the answer from a safe stand-off distance, with the necessary speed and accuracy.
The UKMoD has recently taken delivery of 114 LEICA VECTOR 1500S GMD (Gap Measuring Devices). To meet the Royal Engineers' requirement for Gap Measuring, Leica has developed customized software which differs from the standard VECTOR 1500. The 1500 GMD displays distances to 0.5 m and heights to 0.1 m. The maximum range remains unchanged at about 2500 m.
Engineers are likely to have additional tasks for the VECTOR 1500 GMD such as minefield mapping, checking approach bearings for helicopter landing sites, search operations, EOD and safety distances for demolitions.
Leica VECTOR for gap measurements: a pioneering role in making reconnaissance surveys more reliable.
