Paper Abstract

In this paper we are presenting the ELOP concept of the night vision for the modern soldier. According to this concept the modern soldier's missions are divided into 4 main layers - situation awareness, improved lethality capabilities, target acquisition and surveillance. Based on this concept during the last few years ELOP has developed a family of products for those needs. Those new products are mainly based on the uncooled technology (with one exception). The uncooled technology allows cost eective solution with superior performance in comparison with image intensiers systems (by means of better robustness to poor lighting conditions, better immunity to dazzling etc.). Those products include thermal monocular, driver thermal sight, thermal weapon sights and hand held thermal cameras.
