Denmark orders JIM LR multifunction infrared binoculars

19th October 2012 - 14:08 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sagem has announced a new contract issued by the NATO Support Agency (NSPA) for its JIM LR (long range) multifunction infrared binoculars for the Danish Ministry of Defence (MoD). The JIM LR is being acquired as part of a modernisation programme for Denmark’s front-line troops.

The NSPA is NATO's integrated logistics and services provider agency. Under the contract, Sagem will supply 126 JIM LR units to the Danish forces, which already use the equipment.

JIM LR binoculars incorporate a number of features in a single portable optronics package, including day/night (infrared) vision, range finding, magnetic compass, GPS, laser pointer and data transmission. The models intended for Denmark will also include an infrared and visible image fusion function, enabling all-weather vision and the ability to see through camouflage in the daytime. They will also be able to record images and videos via a USB port.

With this latest contract, there are now 5,000 JIM LR units in service or under order worldwide, including 2,000 in the French armed forces.
