Combining Uncooled Thermal Channel with Digital Day/Night Camera, MEPRO NYX-200 improves soldier’s situational awareness and allows rapid target acquisition in any lighting conditions and any environment
Shot Show 2018, Las Vegas, USA, January 23-26, Stand #15138
January 18, 2018 Meprolight Ltd. –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 introduce at Shot Show 2018, the unique MEPRO NYX-200 multi-spectral weapon sight and hand-held device.
The MEPRO NYX-200 combines an uncooled thermal channel with a sensitive high-resolution digital day/night camera. The sight improves the soldier’s situational awareness, and allows rapid target acquisition in any lighting conditions and in any environment.
According to Benny Kokia, Meprolight, VP Marketing and Sales , “Modern battlefield challenges force soldiers to carry an expanding array of systems, sensors, and equipment. The weight of this equipment and the need to operate a variety of devices reduces mission effectiveness and may compromise soldier safety. To solve these issues and improve the modern soldier’s operation, we developed the MEPRO NYX-200.”
“The MEPRO NYX-200 is a lightweight, all-in-one weapon sight that includes a thermal imaging channel and day/night sensitive camera, integrated DVR and IR pointer,” Mr. Kokia continued. “This solution replaces at least four (4) different systems currently carried by the average soldier. It allows ongoing work, 24/7, in all environments and weather conditions – meeting the demands of the modern battlefield and increasing mission effectiveness.”
The MEPRO NYX-200 is available in two configurations: thermal channel with digital night camera or thermal channel with digital day camera. The combination of thermal channel and digital night camera (DNC) enables enhanced situational awareness with maximum view at any level of darkness in any environment. The thermal channel can be used in total darkness and through fog, camouflage, etc. The sight’s digital night vision is optimized for Close Quarters Battle (CQB), face recognition, and more.
The combination of thermal channel and digital day camera (DDC) enables the soldiers to use the sight for both day and night operation, eliminating the need to change sights/devices between day and night, and allowing soldiers to move between dark and light environments, such as entering dark places also during daytime.
Long operation time based on four (4) commercially available batteries enables soldiers to complete missions without power failure. The integrated IR pointer (optional) supports various tactical scenarios including CQB and covert night operations. Using integrated DVR enables image capture and video recording and transmitting for mission debriefing. MEPRO NYX-200 was designed and fabricated to the most stringent military standards, including MIL-810, to assure years of reliable operation under all field and environmental conditions.
