Variable Multi Purpose Infrared

Compact multifunction

Different missions require different solutions. Rheinmetall's LM-VAMPIR contains a total of five laser sources in its robust all-metal housing. Three aiming lasers, classified into the visible aiming laser, IR aiming laser and SWIR (short wave infrared) aiming laser. In addition, two laser-based illumination modes are available: The classic IR illuminator and a short wave infrared SWIR-Illuminator. Featuring an integrated Picatinny mount, the LM-VAMPIR adds only 25 mm to the weapon and allows seamless integration to most common assault rifles and submachine guns. The limitation of the maximum laser power of the LM-LowProfile is ensured with a blue safety screw.

Variable laser

Improved night combat capability and increased reaction speed - The LM-VAMPIR laser module contains a powerful visible aiming laser, an IR laser and an IR illuminator.  Beside this, the short wavelength SWIR laser and SWIR illuminator.


For easy alignment of the lasers to the line of sight, the LM-VAMPIR laser module includes the specially designed, factory-aligned Rheinmetall laser block.

Visible aiming laser
When mounting the LM-VAMPIR on the Picatinny Rail, the visible aiming laser enables an exact marking of the aimed target and increases the (first) hit probability. The range here depends on various environmental influences and is normally several hundred meters.

IR aiming laser (not visible)
The IR aiming laser of the LM-VAMPIR, which is not visible to the naked eye, is usually used in combination with night vision goggles (NVG). In this way, it enables a significant increase in night combat capability, surprising effect, and hit probability. The range here depends on various environmental factors and can reach up to 2000 m.

IR illuminator (not visible)
In addition, the LM-VAMPIR laser module has an electronically focusable infrared illuminator, which is not visible to the naked eye. In combination with night vision goggles (NVG), this provides optimal illumination at night, in dark rooms and poorly lit target areas. The diffuser allows the IR illuminator to be switched to a near field IR illuminator (use in Close Quarters Battle, CQB).

SWIR - short wave infrared
The LM-VAMPIR includes a SWIR aiming laser and a SWIR-Illuminator. Both make use of short wave infrared and are not visible to various older generation night vision devices. This can lead to a significant advantage in hidden scenarios. Technical data for the SWIR is available upon request.

Outstanding laser safety

To protect the eyes, the LM-VAMPIR uses the concept of the power-limiting blue safety screw.

 "Train as you fight" - the use of the blue safety screw allows realistic training with mission-relevant equipment. The laser power is - depending on your choice - either reduced (training) or released to the maximum (combat).

Training mode | Laser class 2
Laser class 3R or 3B depending on configuration

All laser classes are defined according to IEC 60825-1:2014. Laser beams can cause eye damage. The user is responsible for compliance with the safety regulations.
