LIOS systems represent the safest possible initiation with built-in test capabilities. They are lightweight, have low power demand, and can have nearly unlimited distance between the fireset and ordnance devices. Laser optics are inherently immune to EMP, EMI, Nuclear Radiation and ESD. Initiation energy interruption is also available.
Our LIOS systems are currently in production and used on defensive missiles to defeat unfriendly missiles with warheads. LIOS supports the critical mission of engaging and destroying in flight, with precision, high-speed ballistic missiles.
