Star SAFIRE 380-HLDc


Long Range Targeting Performance in a Compact System

Introducing the Star SAFIRE 380-HLDc compact, high-definition, multisensor targeting system designed specifically for use on light rotorwing aircraft. The 380-HLDc provides an unmatched “SWaP-T” advantage – Size, Weight and Power plus true Targeting capabilities – in a sensor package tailored to give light attack helicopters the uncompromising Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Targeting (ISR&T) performance required to locate, identify, and engage targets at maximum range.

Size, Weight, Power & True Targeting (SWAP-T) Advantage

  • Compact & Lightweight Single LRU Design makes the 380-HLDc the only compact targeting system designed to maximize ground clearance on light airframes while still delivering the range performance to support today’s popular Precision Guided Munitions (PGMs)
  • High-precision laser designator for accurate targeting at the limits of the system’s imaging performance
  • High Definition multispectral imaging for broad area surveillance and long range Positive ID
  • Lightweight (<70 lb) single LRU system with reduced weight brings HD Targeting to a new class of helicopters


Cutting Edge Performance for Mission Success

  • Full High Definition infrared sensor captures 4x more detail than conventional systems
  • Full High Definition 1080p color EO sensors enable Positive ID at increased range
  • SWIR imager provides LD spot imaging and extended range performance in degraded visual conditions penetrating through smoke, haze, and pollutants
  • High-magnification optics deliver maximum DRI range rivaling the performance of larger, heavier, and costlier targeting systems
  • Precision Laser Designation leverages FLIR’s combat-proven and high reliability solid-state laser design expertise for precision target designation of semi-active laser (SAL) guided munitions
  • Automated in-flight boresight quickly aligns laser designator to payload imaging sensors in-flight to save valuable mission time and ensure first round on target
  • Advanced image processing enhances PID range and operator effectiveness by extracting critical features and scene detail in real time
  • Laser Spot Tracking and Decoding lets operators detect, discriminate, and track coded lasers and illuminated targets
  • Sensor and geospatial data is fully embedded in digital video eliminating need for syncing with separate data ports
  • View, track, and mark ground locations using the fully-embedded navigation functionality and follow moving targets with the robust, multi-mode Autotracker
  • Multiple laser payload options let aircrews point out distant targets to other forces, and determine target distance and locations
  • Simplified Common Interfaces make 380-HLDc fully compatible with existing SAFIRE installations for upgrades and/or mixed fleet operations
  • All-weather design is qualified to the most rigorous MIL standards and fully hardened for military operations

The Series II ALWiP® is constructed from high strength-to-weight ratio graphite/epoxy composite material which facilitates deliberate tailoring of stiffness properties. The composite based ALWiP® performs with the accuracy and dependability of the Series I ALWiP® with a greater reduction in weight. A unique electrically conductive treatment for the composite material provides a ground path to the helicopter, safely dissipating static electricity. The Series II ALWiP® encompasses all Series I ALWiP® weapons mounting stations capabilities.
