The Ground Commander’s Pointer is a hand-held infrared (IR) pointer and illuminator. The IR light is invisible to the naked eye but is fully visible to troops using a night vision device.
The GCP allows the commander to direct concentrations of fire to key points resulting in a force multiplier. The GCP is adjustable to provide target marking and illumination for covert ground operations. It enhances operations in the quickly changing battlefield environment.
GCP-1s are not currently for domestic U.S. sales.
