AN/PED-1, -1A, -1B LLDR: Restore to Serviceable Condition

BLUF: An incorrect setup of the AN/PED-1, AN/PED-1A or AN/PED-1B LLDR can result in units reporting the equipment as broken or unserviceable. Correcting the setup fixes this error.

Recent inspection of unserviceable AN/PED-1 Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder (LLDR) equipment revealed that some systems had an incorrect setup, causing units to believe the operational systems were broken or unserviceable. Specifically, the target locator modules (TLMs) had an incorrect setup for targeting operations. Once the TLMs had the correct setup for targeting operations, the systems were found to be operable.

Here are the affected models:
Nomenclature NSN 1240- LIN
LLDR I, AN/PED-1 01-455-1791 R60282
LLDR II, AN/PED-1A 01-603-7760 R60282
LLDR IIH, AN/PED-1B 01-610-5566 R05028
