Israeli Defense Forces are already operating with brand new thermal sights
TEL AVIV, (BM) – Elbit Systems announces that two configurations of the company’s XACT family of Weapon Sights have entered operational use with the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The company was recently selected to provide thousands of its XACT th65 and XACT th64 uncooled thermal imaging weapon sights to marksmen of both Infantry and Special Operation Forces of the IDF. Last year Elbit Systems announced it concluded delivery of 4,800 XACTth65 weapon sights to the Australian Army.
In a Clip-on or Stand Alone configuration, the compact XACT weapon sights enable effective operation in day and night. Featuring a high resolution colored OLED display, image processing capabilities and a Region of Interest algorithm, XACT weapon sights enable effective target engagement even under degraded visibility conditions.
Embedding a unique calibration algorithm, XACT weapon sights eliminate the need for Non Uniformity Calibration (NUC) or shutter-based calibration thereby enabling continuous and consistent operation. The XACT th64 provides vehicle target recognition from a 1,100-meter range and human target recognition from a 600-meter range, while the XACT th65 enables vehicle target recognition from 1,250 meters and human target recognition from 750 meters. Both weapon sights are housed in a sealed fully submersible metal housing.
Elad Aharonson, General Manager of Elbit Systems ISTAR Division, commented: “Since its product launch a few years ago XACT systems have been selected by numerous customers. The XACT family of systems is a good example of our continuous efforts to deliver technologies that increase both mission effectiveness and safety.”
