Meprolight to Launch New Version of Advanced Uncooled Thermal Weapon Sight

November 04, 2009  | 

Meprolight, a provider of innovative weapon sights, today announced that it will launch a new version of its NOA uncooled thermal weapon sights (X4 and X7 magnification) at Milipol, the international exhibition of internal state security, to be held in Paris, France, November 17-20.

The new version contains an advanced electronic level indicator, a critical component in balancing the sight for effective long-range shooting. Another new feature is the capability to withstand heavy weapon recoil.  The sight's new version enables bidirectional communications with military devices such as range finders and wireless recording systems.

The new version is designed for snipers who operate under harsh environmental conditions and need to detect and accurately engage targets at long ranges reaching more than 1,000 meters in variable weather conditions and very limited light availability or total darkness. The NOA sights, with their high resolution and digital zoom, detect targets in urban or densely vegetated areas, including camouflaged people or targets behind camouflage nets.

"This announcement further establishes Meprolight as a global leader in thermal sights," said Golan Kalimi, Meprolight's Vice President Marketing. "The new version greatly improves sniper performance. We are committed to help our clients around the world meet the most demanding challenges of long-range sniping in any environmental condition."

NOA's state-of-the-art sights are equipped with a cutting-edge Fire Control System (FCS), featuring automatic ballistic compensation based on range and type of weapon and ammunition, among others. Additional features include leveling indicator, Laser Range Finder interface for automatic target range acquisition, and the ability to upload and download data.

NOA sights enable wired or wireless transmission of streaming video and real-time video recording, as well as integrated capturing and storage of still images. The NOA sights excel in low energy consumption, allowing up to 10 hours of continuous operation.
