The opto-mechanical design and manufacture of a Thermal Imaging Airborne Laser Designator (TIALD) Pod is reviewed. The design concept is that the equipment should be modular in form, allowing the pod to be reconfigured for a variety of applications. Possible advantages of incorporating a TV camera in such a system are discussed and the versatility of a modular system is illustrated by the ease with which such a TV sensor can be added to the original thermal imaging equipment.
