Notes:

LOCWS = "Laser Obstacle & Cable Warning System"

This module contains moveable mirrors that rapidly scan a laser beam across the flight path of the aircraft. Reflections of the laser beam from objects are detected by the LOCWS and analysed to identify, and then warn of, hazardous obstacles ahead.
