Capt. Patrick Owens, a capabilities integration officer at Marine Corps Combat Development and Integration, demonstrates the Common Laser Range Finder-Integrated Capability system used by dismounted Marines to deliver accurate distance and location of targets through built-in laser range technology. The lightweight, handheld GPS device was fielded in February and replaces the larger, multi-item legacy. Now with just one system, Marines can relay accurate coordinates for lethal, on target fire support. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Mathuel Browne) - Capt.
