MoD tests Thermoteknix night vision kit
Thermoteknix Systems' night vision and thermal imaging equipment has been tested by the UK defence forces during the Army Warfighting Experiment (AWE) 2017.
The AWE trial, held at the Ministry of Defence's Salisbury Plain training area, examines early phase, innovative products for future use by British troops. According to the company both systems were included in a trial aimed at providing equipment for situational awareness and detection for use in urban combat.
FuseIR provides a powerful fusion of image intensification with high resolution thermal imaging in a lightweight package for the detection and identification of targets in all conditions, including complete darkness, low light, inside buildings and in brightly lit urban environments. The system is powered by AA batteries.
Helmet-mounted TiCAM 90 is a miniature thermal imaging monocular. It detects objects in all weather conditions and presents an alternative to night vision goggles for effective performance in the low lit zones commonly encountered in urban combat.
