Safran Electronics & Defense has unveiled a new version of its JIM Compact multifunction infrared binoculars featuring embedded long range sniper (TELD) function, the company announced on 2 April.

This new function has been developed in partnership with the French Commandment of Special Operations. 

TELD significantly increases the probability of first round hit on moving targets, as well as reducing collateral damage. It also limits the cognitive load on the user by performing calculations and enables faster engagement of moving targets.

Weighing less than 2kg, the compact system has been designed for day and night contact operations. It is equipped with wireless communication capabilities such as WiFi and Bluetooth.

The multi-function binocular portable optronic equipment combines a high-resolution cooled infrared channel, a TV channel, an integrated ‘see-spot’ capability, a laser pointer, a laser range finder, a low-level light channel, a digital magnetic compass as well as an integrated GPS receiver.
