Super-accurate pontoon bridge assembly

Military relies on laser tracking for precision
A leading UK defence company, Alvis Vickers Ltd (AVL), uses Leica Geosystems' cutting-edge laser tracker technology to ensure the required pinpoint accuracy for assembly of its military pontoon bridges.
AVL, the sole armoured vehicle supplier to the UK armed forces and a major player on international defence equipment markets, has recently purchased Leica Geosystems state-of the-art LTD800 laser tracker system to guarantee precision machining and assembly for both major components of its world-renowned BR90 military bridging system. AVL also acquired a number of accessories, including an I-Paq radio remote control. AVL chose the Leica Geosystems system, which was delivered and commissioned in early 2004 to AVL's Wolverhampton site, in the face of stiff international competition. It cites the Swiss-based company's combination of proven professional excellence, industry-standard status, top-level support and general reputation as key purchase criteria.
