Description: The Handheld Azimuth Measuring, Marking, Electro-optic imaging & Ranging (HAMMER) is a handheld/man-portable precision targeting system developed by BAE Systems for the US Army. This targeting system has been designed to weigh and cost a fraction of existing handheld targeting systems used by the US Army. This compact device is intended to mark targets in all weather and lighting conditions for GPS-guided and laser-guided munitions. BAE Systems was awarded a $15 million in April 2013 for the engineering and production of the HAMMER targeting system over a period of three years under the US Army's Joint Effects Targeting System (JETS) program. The HAMMER precision targeting device would be ready for fielding by 2016. When fielded it will help soldiers distinguish friends from foes with satellite positioning and surveillance information, and allow them to rapidly receive, transmit, and coordinate targeting data.
