The MAWL®-DA (Modular Advanced Weapon Laser - Direct Action) is a high power infrared and visible green aiming and illumination laser for individual carbines. Offering improved ergonomics, interface, and performance, the MAWL®-DA has been engineered from the ground up around the needs of the modern night fighter.
Designed to address the shortcomings of common laser devices in use with both military and law enforcement, the MAWL® incorporates cutting edge VCSEL technology which eliminates the current problem of inconsistent and granular, speckled illumination. This unparalleled beam quality is leveraged with multiple modes of divergence and power, based on the ideal settings for any operational environment: Close Range, Mid-Range, or Long Range.
The MAWL®-DA is a modular system. The body, end-cap, and head are separate, interchangeable components. The MAWL® is completely ambidextrous and can be configured on the rail to suit the operator’s needs.
2021 Revisions on all current production models made since then:
Reduction in divergences across all MAWL settings have been implemented to provide greater clarity and illumination at longer ranges; meanwhile reducing potential illumination of closer objects that may distract the shooter, such as blades of grass, shrubbery/vegetation, etc. As part of this, we removed the stacked divergences on mid-range to provide distinct settings in line with end-user preferences.
Intuitive and Immediate Operation: All (A) Buttons are intended for longer-ranges with tighter divergences, and all (B) buttons are intended for shorter ranges with wider divergences.
Power & Irradiance: By the numbers, it can appear that there is less illumination than before, but please note that divergences have also narrowed. For clear identification and illumination of targets at all ranges this is not only sufficient, but most appropriate.
“Ride the Slide”: The current settings allow for the end-user to double-click constant on, and quickly manipulate multiple ranges with any given divergence pattern between high, medium, and close range. For example, an operator may utilize only (B) button within a structure, adjusting between low/medium/high in the wider (B) button setting as they move through stairwells, hallways, and rooms quickly. The same can be said of quickly adjusting through (A) button settings in an exterior urban environment should constant-on IR illumination pose a threat of compromise.
Two additional settings have been added to MAWL-DA, providing two more modes of operation. Whereas there were 6 settings before, now there are 8, providing the end-user with a greater multitude of options depending on environment and application.
A new High-Power “TripleClick” capability has been added allowing the end-user more control at further distances. Triple clicking [PUSH-PUSH-HOLD] the (A) or (B) button works to activate/deactivate alternate divergence and power output settings in the Long-Range mode. This allows us to ensure Close, Mid, and Long Range settings include settings most appropriate for both modern and legacy night vision tube sensitivities.
Triple-Click High Power Pointer/Illuminator: This higher-power illuminator, and higher-power pointer allows for greater visibility of the beam at longer ranges. This is allows for a higher-powered pointer beneficial for seeing target holdover reference points, pushing through obscurants, and/or defeating photonic barrier at distance.
Triple-Click High Power Pointer Only: This provides the capability of a Commander’s Pointer for ground-to- ground or air-to-ground integration and clear, precise target marking.
