Fire control thermal sight for higher first hit probability

 

Developer of equipment and systems for safety, and security-critical applications, Senop, a part of Patria Group, will launch a smart and accurate HUSKY Fire Control Thermal Sight at the DSEI 2017 exhibition in London on 12th-15th September.

The HUSKY Fire Control Thermal Sight is the next-gen of smart weapon sight. A single push of a key is enough to rapidly calculate the aiming dot by using distance, ammunition’s ballistic tables, temperature and measured terrain angle.

"We designed the device's functionality, features and user interface specifically for grenade machine guns. By changing its ballistic calculation, we can easily customise it for a wide range of other applications including other heavy weapon types, remote weapon stations, reconnaissance and observation systems," said Mika Räty, Managing Director at Senop.

Extreme versatility for demanding operations
The Fire Control Thermal Sight has an integrated uncooled thermal imager which offers several advantages in relation to conventional cooled technology. The device is ready for use immediately when switched on without any start-up time delay.

Cost-efficiency is also one of the key advantages of uncooled thermal imaging technology.

"The overall life cycle cost of the device is clearly lower in comparison to comparable models. The service life of the thermal imager’s sensor unit is dozens of times longer in comparison to conventional devices," said Timo Vuorenpää, Technology Director, Optronics at Senop.

The HUSKY Fire Control Thermal Sight includes an eye-safe laser range finder, global positioning system, inertial measurement unit, digital magnetic compass and a ballistic computer that supports airburst ammunition programming.

The sight and its external display and keypad are separate devices that can be positioned and adjusted according to user needs. Ergonomy further enhances efficiency.

Advanced information and situational awareness sharing are also supported. The device can be connected to different C2 systems.
