B_____ L___ O_ S____ (BLOS) is an extension of traditional direct fire that extends the range to the next terrain compartment. BLOS enables standoff engagements at greater ranges and also opens up fields of fire previously denied to firing elements due to the restrictions of intervening terrain, adverse weather effecting LOS engagement or range to the target. The sensor, decider and shooter are resident within the same echelon, typically company level and below. BLOS is still direct fire in that the gunner pulling the trigger sees the target directly through a sensor. The crew can identify the target, clear ground fires to prevent fratricide, and is responsible for avoiding collateral damage and complying with ROE (FCS ORD, 30 June 20)
