I know you have to add the mime type to be allowed for the web application for pdf documents and assume the same would need to be done for your .las files but it doesn't appear to have any associated mime type according to the following document:
$webapp = Get-SPWebApplication http://nameofsharepointwebapp.com
You could also try switching the Browser File Handling option from Strict to Permissive under the General Settings for that web application in Central Admin.
Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, without a mime-type for the .las file I'm afraid there would not be a way to open the file directly from the document library (at least not that I'm aware of). The mime-type basically enables the web server to tell the browser the type of information that is associated with the file so it knows how to handle it.
You could try configuring the file associations within Internet Explorer but I'm not quite sure if that would work either. Your best bet is to contact the vendor of that application and find out if there is an available Mime-Type for the .las file extension.
