Meprolight will showcase its ultra-smart, proven solutions, developed especially to meet the precise needs of global military and HLS markets, at MiliPol Paris next week.
Press Release, 14 November 2019: Meprolight – a member of the SK Group and a leading manufacturer of electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, self-illuminated sights, and Laser Range Finder systems for military, law enforcement and civil applications – will showcase its ultra-smart, proven solutions, developed especially for these markets at Milipol Paris 2019.
Among the solutions to be showcased at the exhibition are the multi-spectral MEPRO NYX 200 uncooled thermal sight, the MEPRO FORESIGHT that allows the use of a wide range of in-FOV display profiles, and the MEPRO MicroRDS sight, installed with an adaptor for quick installation and removal.
The MEPRO NYX-200 is available in two configurations: thermal channel with digital low-light camera, or thermal channel with digital day camera. Additionally to the known advantages of thermal sights that enable operation in harsh sight conditions such as total darkness, smoke and fog., the combination of thermal channel and digital day camera (DDC) enables the effective use of the sight for both day and night operations, provides enhanced situational awareness eliminating the need to change sights/devices between day and night, and allowing the user to perform tasks impossible with standard thermal sights such as observing through glass windows and facial recognition. The combination of thermal channel and digital low-light camera (DLLC) is optimised for Close Quarters Battle (CQB) and supports viewing IR laser pointers. Similar to the DDC-equipped version it significantly enhances the user’s tactical efficiency and operational flexibility. In addition, both sight versions have a built-in infrared (IR) laser pointer. That assists in designating targets acquired by the sight’s user for force members who are equipped with a standard image intensified night vision sight or observation system, an integral digital video recorder (DVR) for mission documentation and debriefing purposes, and an optional top-mounted backup red dot sight for rapid short-range target engagement.
The MEPRO FORESIGHT is an augmented weapon sight which provides essential tactical data projected directly on its transparent optical lens in real time and equipped with a digital zeroing mechanism. The sight is integrated with Meprolight’s mobile App (Android and iOS) through a Bluetooth interface, enabling storage and easy upload of up to 10 preset weapon zeroing settings or user profiles. Additional features include a digital compass, levelling, and battery status indications, 5 user-selectable reticle for various tactical scenarios, continuous firmware updates, and a built-in sensor for automatic brightness adjustment.
The MEPRO MicroRDS, offering rapid target acquisition at close distances with both eyes open, is designed for pistols and small arms. It serves as either the main weapon’s aiming sight or as a backup sight for rifles’ magnifying optics. The patented quick-release mounting (MEPRO MicroRDS adaptor) allows the user, if needed, to rapidly detach the optical sight and use the weapon’s standard tritium or mechanical sights. Compact, rugged, energy-efficient it is equipped with a large display window and a clearly-defined red dot. Having easily switchable reticle brightness intensities it can be used in all light conditions, alongside a backup tritium TRU-DOT night sight. It utilises a single CR2032 battery and supports battery replacement without the need for detachment.
