Theon Sensors unveils thermal imaging range

21st June 2016 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Theon Sensors has unveiled a new range of thermal imaging products. The company develops electro-optic systems for image intensification thermal and night vision systems.

The range includes a thermal driver’s viewer, a thermal in-line afocal and a family of thermal weapon sights. All the products offer extended identification, recognition and detection ranges.

The thermal driver’s viewer, THERMON, can be configured to accommodate a large number of tanks and armoured vehicles. The IR electronics and optics can be mounted in external housings or gimbals, or within the vehicle through the driver's hatch periscope. The IR scenes can then be viewed via an internal militarised display.

The thermal in line afocal works with several day gunsights, such as the Trijicon 4x32 and Elcan Specter.

The thermal weapon sights range includes three thermal weapon sights: THERMIS heavy, medium and light. The heavy sight is for grenade launchers, sniper rifles, and heavy machine guns such as the M2 or MK19. The medium sight is for machine guns such as the FN Minimi and Mag, M60, and MG3. The THERMIS light sight for short range weapons such as the M16 and M4 rifles.

The company's thermal products utilise an in-house IR module that is currently based on 640x480-pixel 17μm pitch IR detectors. However, the module features open architecture to incorporate larger-resolutio and smaller-pitch detectors from other detector makers.
