The modules use Nd: YAG laser operating at the 1064nm wavelength, which ensures designation of targets located up to 5 km away from the operator. In addition to designating the target, the system also allows distance measurement from 200m to 20km – thanks to built-in laser rangefinder. The development and implementation of the domestic target designator allows, from the very first minutes of a conflict, to guide NATO air forces to the operations at the border, where Polish operators will indicate targets for engagement by allied air forces. It is important to mention the system supports day and night operation due to use of interchangeable, optional targeting modules: an optical sight, day camera or night camera (night vision or thermal imaging). Built-in OLED display allows for real-time device monitoring, measurement data display as well as guidance mode (manual or remote) information.

and APR 155, APR 120 and laser guided aircraft bombs.
The system was created thanks to the cooperation with PCO SA. The project was fully financed by CRW TELESYSTEM-MESKO and PCO SA.
Due to the very tight project schedule, the system was electronically integrated by the engineers, using already existing modules and subcomponents, while maintaining their existing enclosures. Ultimately, the system will be halved in size. The upper guiding module is the LPD-A (TELESYSTEM) rangefinder-designator, the lower one – thermal vision and the gunner’s module constructed at PCO SA.
A novelty compared to other types of optoelectronic equipment used in the Polish Armed Forces is the operator’s ability to control the alignment of the sight and laser.
In the CLU-P, the operator can check the alignment of the optical path to the laser in a dozen seconds, just before firing , and if necessary, without using any tools – correct it.
