Products for Dismounted Soldiers

The following will provide you with a brief overview of the various products. For more detailed information, please contact the relevant subsidiary.

Laser aiming devices – Laser light modules

The laser light modules enable the exact target acquisition and marking by means of different light sources. At dusk or in complete darkness, soldiers equipped with night vision goggles can use infrared near-field illumination to illuminate their surroundings and targets. With the infrared target laser, targets can also be marked over long distances. The laser markers facilitate the intuitive use of the weapon without a visor. Since the laser light modules are equipped with special adapter systems, they can be quickly mounted on any weapon without tools.

All modules are waterproof up to 30 m and can be operated with a remote control cable.

The Vario-Ray has a tactical light, a red and IR laser target marker and an electronically focusable IR laser illuminator. Options include a SWIR laser, a green laser, a wireless remote control and a friend and foe detection interrogator (ZEFF).

Laser Aiming Devices –Laser Marker with IR Illuminator

These low profile laser marker/illuminators are specially designed for top mounting. Additionally mounted red dot visors are not obstructed. The devices feature very low weight, an integrated Picatinny mount and shock resistance for even the strongest calibers. A separate weapon lamp can be integrated with an optional Y-cable. Waterproof up to 30m.

Modular Weapon Lamp – Visible/IR Illuminator

The Lumenator series is a rugged and modular weapon mounted lighting system. A wide range of lamp heads (visible light, IR illuminator and a visible/IR combination head) are available. A variety of end caps (push switch, remote cable socket or both) allow the user to create the perfect lamp for his mission. Waterproof to 30m. All lamp heads of the Vario-Ray also fit on the Lumenator.

Laser Range Finder with Ballistics Computer

The TAC-Ray series features an integrated laser range finder (range up to 2500 m) and a high-precision ballistics computer that can store up to 32 different ammunition settings. The keypad ensures easy one-button operation for fast target acquisition with ballistics calculation and ergonomic access to the menu structure. An IR target marker and an electronically focusable IR illuminator are also integrated in the TAC-Ray.

40mm Fire Control Units (FCU)

Multi-Ray FCUs devices considerably improve the first hit probability of a 40 mm grenade launcher (LV/MV). With a built-in IR target marker and IR illuminator, the devices are fully suitable for night combat. They store up to 32 ballistic tables and have a quick-select button for two predefined ballistic tables. Various red dot sights can be mounted as day sight. The MR-800 has a built-in laser range finder and an airburst programmer.

Weapon Night Sight – KN200 / KN250

N200 and KN250 image intensifiers are add-on units that give optical day sights a night time capability. The night vision image is viewed through the eyepiece of the day sight. This allows the user to retain the same eye position, aiming reticle and magnification for both day and night use.

Day and night binocular – KDN250

The KDN250 observation binoculars are based on a unique design which provides high quality night and day vision. The two channels can be separated, allowing the night channel to be utilised on additional optical systems.
