The DAS-4 system allows mission commanders to use HD data from an airborne tactical sensor to identify and engage targets with greater accuracy, improving overall mission effectiveness. Major improvements include four HD cameras covering five spectral bands, a three-color diode pump laser designator/rangefinder, laser spot search and track capability, automated sensor and laser bore sight alignment, three-mode target tracker, and built-in provisions for future growth.
