Paper Abstract

Thales Anenieux has been manufacturing for two decades flexible light intensifier goggles that have been popular over numerous countries: thanks to the advent of uncooled microbolometer arrays, further outlooks are settled. Army Forces can have now at their command a multi-purpose and cost effective set of devices that answer most of the battlefield mission profiles. Thales Angenieux move from light intensifier goggles to low cost infared imagers and this smooth change is sketched out: our erlier experience on compact and user-friendly L.I equipment, especially in the field of the opto-mechanical design, has helped us to push forward the best compromises. Our product line policy is displayed: really, we have made a point of addressing many potential customers demands by singling out a modular approach. Further developments are now going on.
