COLDS NGB has been designed for naval applications. The system detects laser range finders, laser target designators and laser beam riders with an excellent efficiency in all bearings.
Each COLDS NGB sensor unit covers more than 180° in azimuth and 90° in elevation. Therefore, a full coverage of 360° in azimuth can be obtained for each cluster, with two sensors installed on starboard and portside. Depending on the size of the ship the system allows a configuration with up to 16 sensor units to ensure full protection of the platform.
