Here is a neat one I stumbled across. Lifted from the never-updated FAS-ORG site.

AN/PXX-X TARGET LOCATION AND OBSERVATION
SYSTEM (TLOS)

The TLOS allows the individual soldier to find threat optical and electro-optical surveillance devices located on tanks, scouts, snipers, etc. Location of these devices will enhance the effectiveness for U.S. forces. TLOS also has capability to provide covert illumination for fire direction, improved night vision sighting and landing zone marking. P3I TLOS will include rangefinding, precise target location, and digital battlefield capability.

TRANSPORTATION CHARACTERISTICS / LIMITATIONS: Weapon mounted, Manportable.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND:

1991 Program initiated as part of Laser Countermeasures System (LCMS).

Aug 95 LCMS Production Contract Awarded.

Dec 95 TLOS program restructured by OSD.

Mar 96 Contract mod for production of TLOS.

REQUIREMENTS DOCUMENT: Required Operational Capability (ROC) 12 Sep 91.

TYPE CLASSIFICATION: Standard 2QFY96.



I wasn't able to find anything else about this item online, so I guess it got cancelled, eh? Anybody else got anything on this sucker? Sounds pretty cool.

New name for it, but it does seem the project never got very far. The best data I found mentions the Clinton years...
